The study concerns a noise impact prediction, in order to establish compliance according to the contract, of new water cooling towers that will be installed following the completion of a modern central cooling subservient to the General Hospital “A. Gemelli” in Rome.  To characterize the existing cooling towers of the refrigeration unit, and to detect the residual noise of the area, sound level measurements were carried out during the night.  These samples, together the data of sound emission of the new sources (certified by the manufacturer), were used in order to build the prediction noise scenarios using the “CADNA” software and other appropriate algorithms.
