We design, manufacture, supply and install, ISO standard & bespoke Acoustic Containers.

Including integrated ventilation systems and associated M&E fit-out options, MP’s standard methods of construction provide a robust and high integrity structure suitable for lifting and transportation of any installed equipment.

Our 3D Modelling capabilities offer a greater design insight and a streamlined design cycle, both improving project visualisation and increasing accuracy.

Acoustic Containers Applications

A Blue and Green CHP System: Acoustic Containers help reduce and manage noise levels for CHP which are typically installed in mixed residential and industrial areas

Acoustic Containers for Combined Heat & Power

CHP Icon for Acoustic ContainersCombined heat and power (CHP) is a highly efficient process that captures and utilises the heat that is a by-product of the electricity generation process. By generating heat and power simultaneously, CHP can reduce carbon emissions by up to 30% compared to the separate means of conventional generation via a boiler and power station. Generally utilising gas engines which may run 24-hours a day. Acoustic Containers help reduce and manage noise levels for CHP which are typically installed in mixed residential and industrial areas

Diesel Generator Sets

Diesel Generator Set Icon for Acoustic ContainersGenerator power sets have always been a requirement in the market for standby power, with greater emphasis on green and low-carbon technologies to support current energy demands across the country. The higher use of renewable energy in the UK and across the world, along with standby generation plants demonstrates this shift in emphasis towards an increasingly diverse mix of power generation.

Equipment used for standby power generation can produce very high levels of noise, creating issues for both plant maintenance operatives and nearby residential properties, especially if the plant operates during night-time hours.

UPS & Switchgear

UPS & Switchgear Icon for Acoustic ContainersUninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) battery arrays and switchgear typically require protection from the elements, and whilst there are likely to be high heat losses from the UPS invertor, it is critical to maintain a stable temperature in order to ensure the lifespan and reliability of the battery cells.

MP offer bespoke containerised solutions which make use of a combination of fan assisted ventilation, air-conditioning, and heating to meet the requirements of the specific application.

Offshore Pumps & Hydraulic Power Packs

Offshore Pumps & Hydraulic Power Packs Icon for Acoustic ContainersOffshore applications for containerised packages vary, however, compliance with the highly specialised noise and environmental controls required to ensure the safety of employees is critical.

MP have the product and application knowledge to ensure that the most stringent of specifications are complied with.

    Acoustic Containers FAQ

    • An Acoustic container, also known as a noise-reducing or soundproof container, is a structure designed to manage noise levels of commercial and industrial machinery through soundproofing and noise dampening.

    • Noise levels above 85 dB over a prolonged period of time is harmful to humans and can lead to headaches, hearing loss and other health concerns. The louder the sound, the shorter the amount of time it takes for side effects to occur, and the longer we have exposure to high sound levels the greater the risk we have to long lasting effects.

      Acoustic Containers are used to help ensure the noise level specification and legal requirements of noise pollution are achieved in a wide variety of machinery and applications such as

      • Diesel Generator,
      • Combined Heat & Power,
      • Uninterruptible Power Supply
      • Power Generation
      • Offshore Pumps
      • Hydraulic Power Packs
      • Commercial or Industrial Applications
      • Water & Wastewater
      • Waste Management & Recycling

      Noise reduction is not the only benefit of an Acoustic Container, by enclosing the machinery, we add a layer of protection against the elements and any damage from any workplace activity. These can also improve the building aesthetics by hiding machinery from the view of employees, customers and nearby homes.
