Wakefield Acoustics, one of the UK's leading manufacturers of advanced industrial, commercial and environmental noise control systems, has secured a contract for thesecond phase of a multi-million-pound project at the Johan Sverdrup oil field development.

As part of the contract, Wakefield Acoustics will design, supply and install two high specification acoustic enclosures at the oil field. The state-of-the-art acoustic enclosures are designed to address complex noise problems from the main oil export pumps at the oil field, located on the Norwegian continental shelf.

Each enclosure is fabricated from corrosion resistant materials, making them ideal for the challenging climatic North Sea environment in which they will operate. The enclosures are also fully ATEX compliant and designed in accordance with stringent NORSOK standards.

Designed to withstand client specified blast loads in the event of an explosion, a number of safety features are incorporated within the enclosure design. These include; fire and gas detection and suppression systems, PAGA visual beacon warning systems, hazardous area compliant ventilation systems and emergency lighting for use in the event of mains power failure.

Wakefield Acoustics already worked with Johan Sverdrup oil field during 2016/17 to design, supply and install 17 high specification acoustic enclosures to the site as part of phase 1 of the scheme.

Lee Nicholson, Managing Director of Wakefield Acoustics, said: “We are very proud to have been part of the highly successful phase 1 of the Johan Sverdrup oil field project and are very much looking forward to continuing to support the client by supplying even more advanced noise control solutions during the second phase of works.

“The award of this contract underlines our team's exceptional expertise and capabilities in the oil sector. We look forward to working collaboratively with the customer over the coming year to deliver a high standard project safely and to the client's requirements.”

Johan Sverdrup oil field is one of the largest oil discoveries ever made in the North Sea region and is expected to generate between 550-650 barrels per day at its peak over the course of the next 50 years.
