When carrying out its operational management and projects, Gasunie takes the maximum acceptable noise contours into consideration. Sound pressure levels should not be so great when performing work that damage can occur.
Our basic principles are working conditions guidelines, legislation and local legislation, regulations and standards.
According to Dutch law, noise-limiting measures must be put in place for new-build stations, for major adaptations to stations and in the event of complaints. Different noise measurements are carried out in the context of environmental permits, projects and other situations whereby possible noise problems could have arisen due to adaptations.
Noise measurements are also carried out where necessary in order to check whether the permit conditions have been satisfied.
