Repeat Order of Marine Lights to the Middle East

Wednesday, March 3, 2004

Carmanah is pleased to announce that it has received a repeat order from
the Middle East Navigation Aids Service (MENAS) for 700 Series
solar-powered LED marine lights.

The lights will be used by the government for buoys marking fisheries areas between Bahrain and Qatar. The water in this region is very shallow (0-4m) and therefore the buoys are quite small. Carmanah's compact, fully integrated marine lights were considered ideal for this application. The Marine Services Manager for MENAS commented "...the build quality is superb and we will certainly use `Carmanah's lights` again where a self contained unit fits the brief..."
