DW-ShipConsult is participating in the NEPTUNES project
Acting as acoustic expert for the Hamburg Port Authority, DW-ShipConsult provides valuable knowledge and insight on the shipacoustic causes of noise in ports.
Project NEPTUNES (Noise Exploration Program To Understand Noise Emitted by Seagoing ships) aims to mitigate the noise pollution from seagoing vessels by developing an universal measurement protocol, guidelines for noise labelling of vessels and a best practice guide for noise hindrance reduction measures.
As Naval Architects and Shipacoustic experts, DW-ShipConsult contributes with its long term experience in mitigating ship noise. Especially insights from past projects where low frequency noise from ship exhaust gas outlets and ventilation fans were reduced by DW engineers are very valuable for the NEPTUNES project.
It is our mission to assist ports, shipowners and residents to establish a sustainable coexistence with equal respect to economic needs and habitability.
DW-ShipConsult intends to reach that goal in promoting a three step approach
- Identify what noise immission is perceived as most annoying
- Identify what source is causing that noise
- Mitigate these causes in an efficient way by concentrating on the most important ones
