Carmanah Receives Additional Airfield Lighting Order for Kandahar Air Base, Afghanistan

Thursday, July 14, 2005

Carmanah's Aviation Lighting Division has received an additional order from the US Air Force for 72 airfield lights to be installed at the Kandahar AFB in Afghanistan. This order consists of lights for runway, threshold, taxiway, and obstruction lighting applications.

Without access to a conventional power source, the Air Base requires a reliable airfield lighting solution that operates using an alternative power source.

Since late 2003, the Kandahar AFB has been using Carmanah's runway, threshold, taxiway, obstruction, helipad, and apron edge lights for both fixed wing and rotary aircraft operations. More than 900 units of Carmanah's solar-powered LED aviation lights are now installed at this facility.

Thousands of Carmanah solar-powered LED airfield lights are installed in more than 10 countries in the Middle East for NATO and US Defence operations.
