Underwater Noise & Environmental Acoustics Services

The awareness of underwater noise and potential impacts to marine life and operational objectives has steadily increased over the past several decades. Concerns range from commercial vessels operating in environmentally sensitive areas to marine exploration and construction activities. Noise Control Engineering has extensive experience predicting, measuring, and controlling underwater radiated noise levels in a wide variety of applications.

In addition, NCE is a certified Service Supplier (External Specialist) in Ambient Environmental Testing from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), which maintains rigorous standards for noise, vibration, lighting, temperature, and relative humidity measurement.
