Carmanah Receives Order from US Air Force for 300 Solar LED Taxiway Lights

Monday, July 24, 2006

Carmanah has received an order from the US Air Force (USAF) for 300 units of its A601 taxiway lights, as well as related A601 stake mounting hardware and bolt kits. These units will be installed at a Forward Operating Base in the Middle East that already uses more than 2500 units of Carmanah's solar LED portable airfield lights.

The USAF has been using Carmanah's solar-powered LED aviation lights for Middle East US DOD and Coalition Forces Operations where powered infrastructure is not available or unreliable. Carmanah's airfield lights are ideal for permanent, temporary and emergency airfield lighting applications.

Carmanah's A601 is the world's most advanced solar-powered LED portable aviation light with two miles of visibility. This unit is completely integrated, self-contained, waterproof and it has been field-proven to operate at nearly any location on Earth. The A601 has withstood the harshest of environmental conditions, including extreme temperatures, shock and vibration, sand storms and jet blast.

Carmanah is a global leader in solar-powered LED lighting. US Defense, NATO & Coalition Forces alone have installed more than 20,000 lights around the world. These organizations have saved millions of dollars in capital, installation and maintenance costs by using Carmanah's cost-effective and innovative airfield lighting technology.
