Wakefield Acoustics secures six-figure contract with UK energy farm
Wakefield Acoustics, a leader in the design, manufacture and installation of noise control technologies, has secured a six-figure contract to supply a package of acoustic equipment for the new gas-fired power plant at Creyke Beck Power Station in East Yorkshire.
As part of the contract, the company will supply 11 high specification inlet ventilation modules, 11 outlet ventilation modules, as well as a series of acoustic doors to support the expansion of the Creyke Beck Power Station.
The new gas-fired power plant at Creyke Beck Power Station is one of the first of its kind in the region and is expected to provide back-up power for as many as 50,000 homes at short notice. These ‘peaking’ plants are being built all over the UK to provide instantaneous back up power to the grid as unreliable renewables such as wind become increasingly part of the energy mix.
