Victoria, British Columbia, September 7, 2006 - Carmanah Technologies Corporation announces the launch of its Model A704-5 wireless solar-powered LED airfield light into China's rapidly growing aviation market.
Carmanah representatives will unveil the Model A704-5 at the inter airport China 2006 tradeshow in Beijing, China, September 6 - 8, and then will meet with distributors from seven surrounding countries at the Carmanah Aviation Distributor Conference in Beijing, September 8 - 10.
China is a key aviation market with the world's second largest total of departing passengers on scheduled airlines and unprecedented growth averaging 13 per cent per year. Carmanah's Model A704-5, the world's most versatile solar-powered LED airfield light for permanent, temporary and emergency applications, will help meet the demands of China's large-scale airport expansions.
"This is our first airfield light to include wireless control and our first light to include dual-function infrared and visible-spectrum LED operation," states Carmanah's CEO, Art Aylesworth. "The A704-5's unprecedented suite of features greatly increases the range of applications and safety enhancements for our commercial, defense and general aviation customers."
An investment in Carmanah lights pays for itself; California's Truckee Tahoe Airport saved US$850,000 in capital costs and an ongoing US$16,000 annually in electricity bills.
