Acoustic discretion improvement of a merchant ship, a practical example: LA THALASSA

M. Hervé QUERE, DCN/Brest


The Fishery Research Vessel Thalassa has been designed to reach a low level of acoustically radiated noise. After delivery, an inventory of fixtures has been conducted by running the ship through a field of sea-bottom hydrophones. Fifteen equipments have been identified as a potential cause of acoustic pollution between 10 and 30 Hz.

DCN I Brest has given an expert opinion on these machines and proposed a number of modifications, which have been realised. Three significant examples of modifications are shown : ventilators of the electric propulsion, stabilised courant plants, sea-water pumps. Only one part of the modifications show a gain when conducting closed field measurements. The reasons are analysed.
