Acoustics (Noise and Vibration Assessment)

Noise and vibration issues are a worldwide problem. Eco & Partner offers comprehensive noise and vibration consultancy services across a wide range of industries and sectors, conforming to industry standards, national legislation and international best practice.

Acoustical pollution can cause health problems for people and wildlife, both on land and in the sea.

Often the effects of acoustical pollution are small; however, for some of our clients, they can become a major issue particularly when promoting new infrastructure such as roads, railways, airports and industrial facilities.

We work closely with clients and stakeholders to assess noise and vibrations emissions and the effects these may have on people, property and wildlife. We strive to anticipate concerns and design integrated and sustainable solutions before problems arise.

Our noise and vibration specialist team provides technical support at any stage of project planning, design, construction, implementation to project closure/decommissioning in collaboration with regulatory and industrial best practices. With the state of art equipment and experience of managing and delivering projects ranging from planning support, environmental permitting through to large-scale noise and vibration impact assessments, we have worked with different sectors providing our clients with efficient and innovative ways of solving a host of noise and vibration challenges by modelling, predicting and verifying acoustical, noise and vibration levels as per the Regulatory obligations.

We provide customized, cost-effective and professional services as per the client’s and regulatory requirements. The breadth of our work across sectors means we are able to provide insight from a number of perspectives, whatever the problem in hand.

We offer technical assistance for the following services:

  • Ambient and industrial noise surveys
  • Industrial and infrastructure noise modelling
  • Environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) support
  • Noise assessments for planning and permitting applications
  • Noise and vibration monitoring for construction and demolition works/ decommissioning
  • Acoustically induced vibration (AIV) assessments

      Transitional Support (Dry Rations) Services for Tilenga RAPs 2-5 – As part of the Land Acquisition and Livelihood Restoration Processes, Eco and Partner Consult Limited was contracted by TotalEnergies to provide Transitional Support to Project Affected Households (PAHs) under RAPs 2-5 in line with the approved Resettlement Action Plans 2, 3A, 3B, 4 & 5 (RAPs 2-5).  

      The Tilenga Project developed a Global Livelihood Restoration Programme (Global LR) to mitigate the economic displacement impacts of the land acquisition process. The Dry Rations Program was developed by the project as a transitional support offered to PAP households under RAP 2, 3a, 3b, 4 and 5 to provide basic food security for a duration of six (6) months until when they can harvest their own crops. As PAPs receive notices to vacate they are likely to lose a harvest, the transition support is therefore to help PAP HHs to transit from one season to another

              Human Rights Impact Analysis Study

              The purpose of Human Rights Due Diligence was to identify and address potential and actual adverse impacts with which a company is involved directly or through its business relationships.

              Conducting Human Rights Due Diligence focuses a company’s attention on its responsibility to respect Human Rights and ensures that a company manages risk to people, and not just risk to business. Compliance with national law may not be sufficient, where there is a conflict between legal standards and TEPU’s commitment to respect international Human Rights. TEPU seeks to honor the principles of internationally recognized Human Rights to the greatest extent possible in the circumstance.

                  Tullow entered into three Ugandan exploration licenses in 2004 following the acquisition of Energy Africa.

Further significant discoveries and appraisal success led in 2009 to the basin development commercial volume threshold being exceeded.

                  The Group added further equity and operatorship to the licenses in the Lake Albert Rift Basin when it acquired Hardman Resources in 2007.
