Carmanah’s Model A601 solar aviation lights are lighting up the taxiways at a major international airport in Nigeria, Africa.

In a location where operational challenges include an unreliable supply of electricity for the busy airfield, the Carmanah A601 taxiway lights provide an aspect of reliability and convenience that hardwired alternatives could not. Operating independently of a connection to the electrical grid or generator power, Carmanah’s solar taxiway lights can function reliably at all times, even during power outages. Eliminating the need to rely on an external power supply has allowed the airport to enhance airfield safety in all conditions.

The Model A601 solar taxiway light features a compact, self-contained design that allows airfield crews to install the lights quickly and easily. A simple three-bolt mounting design also requires little technical expertise for installation. Carmanah’s solar-powered taxiway lighting systems are easily expanded and can be transported to different locations as required. This convenience was a key requirement for the airfield as expansion of the system may be required in the future.

Carmanah’s Model A601 solar taxiway lights are ICAO compliant and offer bright, crisp illumination that allow for easy visual recognition of taxiway zones. With no scheduled maintenance for up to five years and no ongoing electrical bills, Carmanah solar taxiway lights offer one of the most reliable and cost-effective lighting solutions on the market.
