Carmanah’s solar-powered taxiway lights have enabled officials at the Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) to create a brand new taxiway in response to a long-term construction project.

As one of Europe’s fastest growing airports, JLA has experienced a 400 percent increase in passenger throughput over the last six years. The quick and easy installation of taxiway lighting was particularly important for this busy facility. With no connection to the electrical grid, Carmanah A601 solar-powered taxiway lights enabled airfield crews to provide edge lighting for a new taxiway in a matter of hours without significant disruption to air traffic.

Installing quickly and easily with just three bolts, Carmanah solar taxiway lights require no trenching or cabling, and can provide crisp, bright illumination for up to five years without battery replacement or scheduled maintenance. With up to 300 hours of operating capacity, the solar-powered taxiway lights allow for continuous operation, even through extended poor weather. A durable self-contained design and on-board energy management system ensure Carmanah’s solar taxiway lights perform reliably in all seasons, year after year.

Carmanah’s solar taxiway lights are in use at commercial, defense and private airfield applications around the world. With over 250,000 installations in over 110 and countries, Carmanah’s solar power technology has become synonymous with quality and performance.
