Focus on noise reduction

Project reduction of noise
HYDRO-CON Elevator contacted DTU (Denmarks Technical University) with a studentproject and we were lucky that Casper Bonefeld, who was a civil engineering student, accepted the project. Casper started the project with a serious attitude and immediately began analyzing and experimenting on the product HSCI to loacte the sources of noise and how these could be reduced.
The implemented suggestion
Before Casper was done with the exam and said goodbye to HYDRO-CON Elevator, the first test setups of HSCI with his suggestions implemented in production. Casper has through his project steered the biggest manufacturer of elevators in Denmark into a noise-reducted era. The employees of HYDRO-CON Elevators thinks this is pretty cool.
At this point HYDRO-CON already have several project in the molding with Caspers suggestions implemented or in the works of being implemented.
