Copenhagen Airport (CPH), located just 8km south-east of the city centre, is Scandinavia’s main airport. After a thorough market review and public tender process, the airport has chosen to continue its long relationship with Brüel and Kjær by updating its current noise monitoring system.

A client of Brüel and Kjær’s since the mid 1980s, Copenhagen Airport will replace their system with Brüel and Kjær’s flagship offering, ANOMS, equipped with 12 permanent and two portable noise monitoring terminals.

The ANOMS airport noise and operations monitoring system, will collect the data from around the airport, correlate this with flight track data and produce publication ready reports for stakeholders and help the airport manage its noise abatement policies.

In addition the airport will receive WebTrak, the award winning, web-based community engagement module, to provide open and transparent flight and noise information to the communities around the airport.

“Aircraft noise is a major environmental challenge for any airport and noise is a major environmental issue for people living near an airport. Brüel and Kjær has the most extensive experience and range of solutions in airport noise monitoring and we are looking forward to upgrading our system with this integrated suite of tools,” said Inger Sturm, head of environmental affairs, Copenhagen Airport.

Installation began in December 2010 and CPH expects the system to be fully operational by June 2011. Once the system is in place Brüel and Kjær’s NoiseOffice Services will ensure CPH has a robust system with data beyond question.

Brüel and Kjær EMS’ european sales manager, Kent Espersen added: “This is a key project for us in our home country. We are pleased to be able to provide CPH with this world-class noise monitoring system and NoiseOffice services to ensure they can provide timely and highly accurate data to all stakeholders.”

“With the addition of WebTrak, CPH will join the world’s leading airports in noise management and community engagement initiatives.”
