The idea is to get the optimal result with minimal expense.
In the present case the operator of a compressor station faced significant vibrations in an office building nearby, so that it was impossible for the employees to work on their CAD-workstations. The vibrations arise from two compressors, sharing one foundation.
„Creative“ ideas have been worked out to solve the problem, but they were far from reality.
After several investigations of third parties, all possible solutions seemed to be exhausted – unfortunately, all of them have been considered to be too expensive (between 250.000 and 500.000 EUR) and impractical (f.ex. building an earth wall between the station and the office) for the operator.
