“This shows a significant reduction in noise levels" said Philippa Burgess, Safety Adviser at Bristol Water.
Echo Barrier partner Hydroner worked with Fusiontec S.A to develop a unique portable framework to allow deployment of Echo Barrier technology in extreme weather environments.
The barriers are specifically designed to cut noise from a fracturing set in exposed areas, designed to be portable whilst resisting winds of up to 150kph.
