Carmanah Technologies Corporation has been awarded a contract by Trueform Engineering for the supply of a minimum of 1,200 solar LED illuminated bus stops. These units are scheduled for installation throughout the City of London, England, between October 2005 and March 2006.
Carmanah’s CEO, Art Aylesworth said: “Due to the high profile of this project and the difficult solar environment in London, the technology development and selection process was the most rigorous Carmanah has ever experienced and took nearly four years to complete.”
Carmanah has already established a track record of developing and delivering solar projects for London Buses over the past four years including:
- Joint development of the first fully integrated solar LED illuminated bus stop in 2001.
- Joint development of the first solar LED illuminated bus shelter installation in mid-2002.
- A field trial of 24 solar bus stops in the Sutton area of Greater London in 2003.
- Receipt of the London Buses solar shelter lighting contract in 2003.
