Memphis International (MCSAA) has ordered 100 Carmanah solar-powered LED barricade lights for a spring runway reconstruction project at the busy International Tennessee hub. From now until the summer of 2005, terminal improvements in excess of $25 million will be made, including renovations to the B Concourse, tenant sponsored jet bridge improvements, and major upgrades to each of our concessionaire partner spaces.
After an initial winter field trial of the Carmanah barricade light, Memphis approved the unit for use, based on its ruggedness, reliability, 5 year maintenance free operation and savings in operating costs.
Carmanah’s solar-powered LED barricade lights are acceptable for use under FAA Advisory Circular 150/53702D. Memphis will benefit from Carmanah’s low upfront capital cost, maintenance-free use, long-term storage capability and 3 year warranty program.
Memphis International adds to the growing list of international airports using Carmanah’s aviation lights, including Chicago O’Hare, Auckland, Toronto, Vancouver, Zurich, Dubrovnik and Milan International.
