Aercoustics First in Canada to Receive Accreditation for Acoustic Noise Emission Testing on Wind Turbines

The Standards Council of Canada has named Toronto based Aercoustics Engineering Limited an ISO 17025:2005 accredited lab to conduct IEC 61400-11 measurements. Aercoustics is the first and only organization in Canada to secure this accreditation for noise testing of wind turbines and they now join only a handful of organizations worldwide (mostly in Europe) that are also accredited in this area.

Meeting both the technical competence requirements and management system requirements is no easy feat as the IEC 61400-11 measurement process is very complex. Results are precise which is critical in keeping the sound emission of turbines in check. As wind turbine noise is a sensitive issue, supplying trusted, high quality, unbiased technical measurements to developers, operators and manufacturers is of the utmost importance.

“Our philosophy has always been to lead by innovation,” says Payam Ashtiani, Principal,  “And this accreditation exemplifies our thought leadership and commitment to superior technical solutions. Being the only accredited consultant in Canada helps us secure our spot at the forefront of the Canadian acoustical industry, paving the way to provide in-depth knowledge in acoustic noise and vibration.”
