The business, which designs, manufactures and installs noise control technologies, has secured the contract to provide products for the new gas-fired power plant at Creyke Beck Power Station in East Yorkshire.

As part of the contract, the company will supply 11 high specification inlet ventilation modules, 11 outlet ventilation modules, as well as a series of acoustic doors to support the expansion of the Creyke Beck Power Station.

The new gas-fired power plant is one of the first of its kind in the region and is expected to provide back-up power for as many as 50,000 homes at short notice.

Wakefield Acoustics worked with the client to design a series of high specification noise control acoustic modules designed to reduce the noise generated by the gas engines down to 70dB.

Lee Nicholson, managing director of Wakefield Acoustics, said: “The project for Creyke Beck Power Station is the latest in our growing portfolio of power generation plants.

“On the back of our extensive expertise in this sector we are delighted to have been chosen as a key supplier to support the work currently being undertaken at Creyke Beck Power Station and look forward to working with our partners on the project to successfully complete the contract.”
