VICTORIA - A local company is supplying self-powered, solar LED marine lanterns to mark oil spill containment booms in the Gulf of Mexico.
Through its Carmanah/Sabik marine partnership, Carmanah Technologies is working with its Houston-based manufacturing partner, Flextronics, to fast-track production and delivery several thousand additional lights.
Carmanah's CEO Ted Lattimore says the M650 LED lights are being attached to containment booms to show mariners what to avoid and mark which channels are open.
