North Vancouver | Under permit review
Port Metro Vancouver received a project permit (PP2012-130) application from Cargill for a Noise Mitigation Project (phase 1).
About the project
The proposed Phase 1 works include the installation of sound absorbing barriers and silencers along the north side of the facility to reduce noise levels at the nearest sensitive residence by five decibels (dBa). The proposed works are part of a long-term noise mitigation strategy to be implemented by Cargill over the next five years.
The proposed project consists of the following:
- Installation of two (2) L-shaped sound absorbing barriers located on the lower section of the Trackshed roof, approximately 15 m (50ft.) long, 7.6 m (25 ft.) West/ 5.8 m (16 ft.) East wide at one end, and 7.0 m (23 ft.) high.
- Installation of two (2) separate sound absorbing barriers located on the upper section of the Trackshed roof, each approximately 6 m (20 ft.) long, 4.5 m (15 ft.) wide, and 4.5 m (15 ft.) high.
- Installation of two (2) Trackshed Fan Exhaust Silencers.
- Installation of eight (8) Trackshed Dust Collector Silencers.
- Implementation of a post-construction noise monitoring program.
