Noise

Description

A programme of monitoring has been undertaken by RSK in order to assess the potential noise
impacts at the residential receptors on the south coast of England, as a result of piling
works for the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm. The closest receptors to the piling works
will be properties along the coast, and will vary as different turbine bases are installed.
The closest piling works for construction of the wind farm bases will be taking place
approximately 13.5km offshore.
The base for the meteorological mast was installed on 13 April 2012, using similar piling
techniques to those that will be employed for construction of the turbine bases. Noise
monitoring was undertaken on shore and on a boat close to the piling operations
immediately before, during, and after the piling operation, and noise level changes as a
result of the piling have been assessed.
