Wednesday, April 2, 2003

Carmanah is the primary supplier of solar-powered LED technology to the US Air Force and US Army for permanent and temporary airfield lighting applications. Already specified as the source supplier of solar-powered LED lighting solutions to the US Navy, US Army Corps of Engineers and the US Coast Guard, the US Air Force is now using Carmanah's aviation lights for taxiway edge lighting, obstruction lighting, apron lighting, barricade lighting and emergency lighting.

Persian Gulf Region

On April 2, Carmanah was able to deliver 40 units within 5 days to a second Persian Gulf US Air Force base. These units are being used for permanent heli-pad, taxiway edge and apron edge airfield lighting. Carmanah has received overwhelming support from its US Air Force customers, as it continues to surpase their performance and customer service expectations.

Carmanah aviation lights are also being used at a second Persian Gulf US Air Force base, where 156 units have been installed for taxiway edge and obstruction lighting at a remote airfield.

Elmendorf AFB, AK

At Elmendorf Air Force Base in Alaska, Carmanah Aviation Lights have withstood the test of surviving the cold and dark Alaskan winter with temperatures dipping below -30°C (-22°F) and daily sunlight totals less than 45 minutes. More than 110 units of the Model 601 will be installed for permanent taxiway edge, apron edge and barricade lighting by the end of March.
