European Chinese Technical Hub, Athlone

AWN Consulting has completed the noise & vibration chapter for the EIS in support of the European Chinese Technical Hub (ECTH) development in Athlone, Co. Westmeath. It will be used as a trading hub for international commerce between China, Europe and the rest of the world. Chinese manufacturers will be able to display their products to European and international buyers in order to generate business. This will mean customers could trade with Chinese businesses without having to travel to China.

The noise & vibration impacts associated with the construction and operational phases of the development were assessed including a wind turbine to be located on site. The noise & vibration chapter was prepared including the specification of required mitigation measures to ensure the development did not have any significant noise or vibration impact on the surrounding area.

An Bord Pleanála has granted permission for the development in May 2012.
