Carmanah Threshold Lights Ordered by Honolulu International Airport

Wednesday, June 2, 2004

Honolulu International Airport (HNL) has ordered Carmanah's portable threshold and runway edge lights for a runway construction project to commence this summer at the south end of its general aviation runway.

The majority of displaced threshold lighting installations rely on diesel driven generators or maintenance-intensive battery use for ongoing runway construction projects. Airport maintenance will instead use Carmanah's Model 702T and 702 Runway edge light for general aviation and military aircraft landing during the construction phase. These portable displaced threshold lights do not require trenching, cabling, generators or any other infrastructure for installation and operation. With no external power or maintenance necessary, they are designed to function for up to 5 years before scheduled battery replacement.

Honolulu International operates as the major airport for all International and domestic flights while sharing airspace with Hickam AFB and more than 250 general aviation aircraft. Carmanah continues to provide low cost effective lighting solutions for international, general aviation and military applications worldwide.
