Through an authorized South Korean distributor, Carmanah’s Marine Lighting Division recently supplied a number of its Model M701-5 GPS solar marine lights to the Busan Regional Maritime Affairs & Fisheries Office in South Korea.

These GPS-synchronized solar LED lights will be used as aids-to-navigation & leading lights within the recently opened Busan Newport, located around the cities of Busan and Jinhae in the south-eastern region of the country.

Aids-to-navigation and lead lighting are very common applications for Carmanah’s M701-5 GPS solar marine light. With its encapsulated polycarbonate/polymer LED optics design and marine-grade aluminum housing, the M701-5 GPS is completely water-proof, vibration-proof and virtually indestructible. It is ideal for all types of marine lighting requiring up to one three miles in visibility. The Carmanah Model M701-5 GPS also incorporates Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) synchronization, which allows any number of M701-5 GPS lights can be set to flash in perfect unison.

The Busan Regional Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Office, a regional office of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs & Fisheries, has implemented general oceanic matters such as improvement of port logistics systems, port construction and management, supply and management of fishery technology, marine safety and sea traffic, seafarers’ welfare and ship management, as well as marine environment and reclaimed areas.

Installed in December 2006, the Carmanah M701-5 GPS solar marine lights are used to enhance the national competitive power through enlargement of port facilities and development of HUB-PORT, the logistics center of North East Asia. Of the M701-5 GPS lights purchased, 80 units were affixed to light posts, and then installed in the ocean and at the pier as aids-to-navigation, and the remaining 20 units were utilized as leading lights.
