Noise Measurement for QPME

ANewR Environmental Consultants were commissioned to study the noise performance of various Quality Powered Mechanical Equipment (QPME) items including:

  • generators
  • excavators
  • handheld breakers

A detailed review of the noise levels of the existing QPME items was undertaken by comparing the noise levels (SWL) determined by measurement methods as required under (i) Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and and Tourism (MLIT) of Japan and (ii) EU Directive 2000/14/EC (ISO3744:2010).
