Compliant Lighting for Wind Tower Construction

Self-contained, solar-powered, LED, steady-burning red lights are cost-effective solutions that meet FAA compliance for temporary lighting solutions during wind turbine construction.

 

FAA REQUIREMENTS

To comply with current 2016 FAA recommendations for wind turbine construction, a company must:

  • Light wind turbines once they reach 200 feet during construction (submitting a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) to justify not lighting the turbines is prohibited)
  • Use an FAA compliant L-810 light with a minimum intensity of 32.5 candela (cd)
  • Ensure temporary solar lighting systems have 7 days of autonomy at 32.5 cd
