This paper deals with problems of noise control involving gas turbine plants, particularly where they are installed near residential areas already subject to noise nuisance.

Noise control measures for existing industrial or power-generating plant are often designed to achieve an overall immitted noise level only marginally below the legal maximum.

Considerably enhanced measures are thus required for additional plant. However, the noise from a gas turbine plant has numerous individual sources and it is shown that a differentiated approach is required. Generally, progressive reductions in noise levels involve disproportionately greater increases in expenditure on appropriate measures.

Stringent environmental protection requirements necessitate cost-intensive solutions.
