PRESS RELEASE: SOLAR OBSTRUCTION AND TAXIWAY LIGHTS INSTALLED DURING RUNWAY EXPANSION
September 19, 2005
Carmanah has received an order from Hypower Inc. for 205 units of Carmanah’s Model A601 solar LED obstruction and taxiway lights. The lights will be installed at the Miami International Airport as a temporary solution while the airport undergoes the Miami International Airport Rehabilitation Project.
Hypower Inc., a division of Applied Industrial Technologies, is currently working on Miami International’s huge expansion project. Temporary obstruction and taxiway lights will be used by the company as it expands existing runways and rewires major traffic areas at the airport.
Carmanah’s A601 solar-powered LED lights are an ideal solution for temporary lighting during construction or other situations when access to reliable grid power is difficult. Before Carmanah’s lights were available, airports typically had to string cables across active runway and taxiways between temporary lighting and then power the network using costly generators. As a comparison, Carmanah’s Model A601 installs in minutes and operates completely autonomously, coming on automatically at dusk and going off at dawn. Each light is waterproof, shockproof and designed to operate with no scheduled maintenance for up to 5 years.
Hundreds of commercial and GA airports worldwide are now using Carmanah’s solar-powered LED airfield lights for temporary and/or permanent applications. In addition to their proven reliability and durability, Carmanah’s airfield lights offer significant savings over traditional hard-wired systems due to their reduced installation, maintenance, and energy requirement costs.
With a solid reputation as the solar-powered LED leader, Carmanah has more than 150,000 units installed in 110 countries. Contact us for more information about the Company’s unique airfield lighting products.
