To ensure the noise-related comfort of the inhabitants of the areas near airports and, therefore, the sustainability of present and future airport operations, Spain has regulations that evaluate and demarcate the areas of noise protection around airport infrastructure.
In the face of urban growth of the municipalities, evaluation and protection areas have been created around this type of infrastructure including the need to analyse and minimise noise conflicts resulting from airport operations.
Since 1997, Ineco has participated in the execution of Aena’s Noise Insulation Plans, through the Management Office, from which it coordinates the carrying out of actions, which has allowed it, to date, to carry out the soundproofing of around 20,000 dwellings and single housing units.
Likewise, since 2006, the company has provided Aena with technical assistance for noise management and management of atmospheric pollution in the airports of its network, highlighting the development of strategic noise maps and the demarcation of noise navigation easements.
Through close cooperation with Aena in the management of noise and atmospheric pollution at airports over recent years, Ineco has gained experience in this type of service that is the key to an environmentally-friendly, sustainable transport system.
