Transformer station (Austria)

Every electrical transformer produces an audible, low-frequency hum during normal operation. Consequently, transformers that are located in populated areas must be housed in enclosures designed to contain the noise and protect the surrounding neighbourhoods from exposure. The  city  of  Vienna  employs  thousands  of  electrical  transformers,  some  of  which  have  been  in  operation  for decades.
