DALLAS, February 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — CECO Environmental Corp. (Nasdaq: CECE), a diversified, environmentally-focused industrial company whose solutions protect people, the environment and industrial equipment, today announced that Aarding-branded solutions from its Acoustics business unit Thermal have received an order to supply two customer-designed exhaust systems for a new clean-energy, gas-turbine power plant, located at New South Wales, Australia.
The power plant is designed as a cleaner alternative energy generator, using natural gas as the main source. The existing coal plant will be retired once the new 660 MW open cycle plant begins commercial production in December 2023. Aarding’s gas turbine exhaust systems will enable the plant to meet or exceed the Australian Government’s stringent noise reduction requirements.
Gas turbine exhaust systems, along with CECO’s other pollution management technologies, are designed to increase equipment safety and efficiency, while simultaneously reducing the environmental impact of noise pollution to protect nearby communities in the plant service area. For example, a typical gas turbine produces a sound of around 150 dB, the equivalent of a jet plane taking off at 25 meters. Aarding’s exhaust system reduces the noise level exiting the turbine stack to around 100 dB, which is equivalent to a lawnmower or power tool.
“Most people don’t think of noise when it comes to pollution, but reducing noise is often just as important as preventing water pollution and air quality. exhaust systems from CECO’s state-of-the-art gas turbines significantly reduce noise generation and thereby protect the communities served by the plant,” said Lars Theunissenvice president and general manager, CECO Environmental Thermal Abatement.
