Noise reduction measures
Monitoring is essential to be able to take targeted measures to reduce noise nuisance. To that end we installed new monitoring systems at the scrap yard and storage facilities. These provide insight into options for further noise reduction measures.
Current: possible noise from Warmband mill
A number of local residents have reported being bothered by a noise that may be coming from the Warmband mill. We have now started working with a team of specialists to identify the possible source.
Limitation of slab storage activity
When turning slabs of steel, it sometimes happens that a slab falls out of the magnet. To reduce this noise, we only turn slabs during the day. At the scrap yard, we raised the noise wall and built U-shaped compartments as noise protection.
