Merford applies new noise control technology to a London transformer station
In the heart of London, the transformers of a power distribution station could be heard by local residents. Merford installed an acoustic screen with the NoiseTrap® technology developed by Sonobex. A revolutionary metamaterial technology where sound is passively cancelled in the panel and natural ventilation is also possible. Network operator UK Power Networks was the first to successfully use this technology for the substation in the Bayswater district, London.
Merford’s PortCab and MasterCab for Sennebogen: a success story for years
It is almost impossible to overlook Sennebogen’s cranes. Thanks to their distinctive green colour, you know right away that you are dealing with a Sennebogen crane. Their cabins also stand out, partly because of the contrasting color and contemporary layout. Some of Sennebogen’s cranes are fitted with a cabin from Merford, depending on the crane types and customer’s wishes. This has been the standard since the late nineties, to the satisfaction of Sennebogen and the end customers.
Bundle cleaner operator sits safe and dry in Merford cabin
Peinemann Equipment supplies machines which clean tube bundles for petrochemical companies. Some types of machine are assembled by the company Burg Equipment. In order to clean the bundles properly, water at a pressure of maximum 1500 bar is sprayed into the pipes. The hard jet of water and the chemical substances released can be dangerous for the operator of the machine. The cabin manufactured by Merford protects the operator from these.
NOVA operator cabin for large and unique type of crane by Van Haagen crane manufacturers
In 2015, Merford supplied its standard off-the-shelf cabin NOVA to the crane manufacturers Van Haagen in Bavel, the Netherlands. The final destination: a unique gantry crane in Szczecin, located in the north-west of Poland on the banks of the Dąbie lake. The crane is one of the largest in Europe and is used, among other things, to produce and manipulate foundation jackets for windmills.
Noise control for transformers West of Duddon Sands Offshore Wind Farm
On behalf of Royal Smit Transformers, Merford Noise Control has developed a set of sound-insulating enclosures for the large power transformers and shunt reactors of an offshore wind farm. The enclosures have been equipped with sound-insulated ventilation systems. This combination limits the emission of noise to a sound power level of 70 dB(A).
