Carmanah Helipad Lights Enhance Airfield Safety in Somalia

Thursday, November 15, 2007

Carmanah's Model A702 solar-powered aviation lights are providing a convenient safety enhancement at a remote helipad in Somalia, Africa. By increasing the visibility of the landing area, both at night and in adverse weather conditions, the lights are helping to improve the safety and efficiency of the site for pilots and passengers touching down at this remote location.

The isolated location had previously presented significant challenges in planning an adequate lighting solution. With no access to the electrical grid, conventional hardwired alternatives were unsuitable, and a lack of high-voltage electrical expertise in the area made Carmanah's maintenance free solar-powered airfield lights the best alternative.

With a compact, self-contained design, Carmanah's A702 solar helipad lights installed easily using only three bolts and required minimal technical expertise. Using the energy of the sun to produce bright, crisp illumination, the A702 is designed to function reliably without any scheduled maintenance for up to five years. The ease and reliability of Carmanah's helipad lights made them an ideal choice for this installation.

Carmanah's solar helipad lights are in use at commercial, defense and private airfield applications around the world. With over 250,000 installations in over 110 and countries, Carmanah's solar power technology has become synonymous with quality and performance.
