From FEED through EPC to commissioning, Vibratec are able to provide expert support to control the noise and vibration issues for your asset.

Our contribution to projects typically comprises, but is not limited to:

  • Issue of specifications:
  • Definition and writing of general company and project specifications;
  • Providing dynamic guidelines for structures, vibrating equipment, piping and supports; and
  • Acoustic specifications and guidelines in design of operational plants, living quarters and control rooms.
  • Engineering studies:
  • Scope of work definition; and
  • Basic & detailed noise & vibration studies.
  • Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) and construction follow-up:
  • Inspection during construction;
  • FAT noise & vibration measurements; and
  • Commissioning surveys.

The success of our strategy is derived from our understanding of the project organization and relies on our excellent collaboration and communication with client’s Mechanical, Structural and HSE teams throughout the project.

Vibratec’s methodologies and expertise provide improvements in the reliability of your facilities and anticipate potential problems that may arise. With respect to vibration and noise, our approach ensures that your facility can increase production life and maximize production efficiency with minimum risk to the health and safety of your personnel.

Our simulation work comprises, but is not limited to:

  • Confirmation that vibration levels on rotating equipment are acceptable and will not reduce the operational duration of its life;
  • Computation of vibration and / or noise maps to be compared to Human Exposure limits; and
  • Modification of the design to avoid the risk of re-enforced resonances (coincidence between equipment excitation frequencies and the natural frequencies of the structure).

 

Design assistance

As an experienced engineering consultancy supporting you throughout your projects, Vibratec will provide you:

  • Expertise: During early stages of the design process, Vibratec are your technical expert in project meetings to review procedures, data and drawings and provide all necessary preliminary recommendations regarding structural, acoustic and mechanical aspects.
  • Knowledge of the main Companies’ noise and vibration philosophies: The main points are to issue adapted specifications and to guide and control the necessary studies to be performed.
  • Interface between Engineering / Company and the machine Suppliers: Vibratec provide liaison with equipment suppliers to help ensure that machinery meets noise and vibration specifications or has any necessary noise / vibration control options applied.

We provide a wide range of environmental and occupational noise and vibration solutions focused on achieving the most benefit for lowest cost, improving the working conditions, safety and environmental performance of your operations. We are experts in resolving the causes and effects of vibration and noise and are focused on helping you solve the toughest technical design and operational challenges in the most efficient end cost-effective manner.

HSE

Noise generated by your installation has regulatory requirements and limits placed upon it for health, safety and the environment. Vibratec can determine the extent of your noise and vibration emissions at design or operational stages. Noise maps highlight the areas contributing most to any limit exceedances. Our expertise and established, proven methodologies help our clients to focus their efforts on the most important areas and equipment responsible for any exceedance. The solutions for control measures in these focused areas are practical and effective, allowing compliance to be achieved for the minimum necessary cost and disruption.

The following items shall be under control:

  • Workers’ exposure to noise,
  • Acoustic impact on the local environment, or residential areas in the case of an onshore plant.
