ST1 Sweden AB is a company that operates a depot business in Karlstad. The facility is required to report its noise impact on surrounding residential areas, in accordance with the control program that has been established. It is important for the company to take responsibility and ensure that the noise impact is kept at an acceptable level.
On behalf of ST1, Efterklang has carried out several noise inquests from the oil depot. With the purpose to estimate the noise impact, the facility has on the surroundings.
