Aviation Renewables completes runway extension in The Bahamas

For Immediate Release

Victoria BC, Canada. 28 August, 2015 --/

Aviation Renewables has recently returned from The Bahamas after delivering, installing and commissioning an extension to the runway lighting system after the paving was completed. Included in the work was the moving of the simple approach system, and mounting the lights on new frangible posts. With the runway extension, the airport can handle larger and faster aircraft to support clientele at a new hotel and resort.

The installation of lights on the extension was completed in a few short days, highlighting the flexibility and ease-of-use of solar powered runway lighting. As a radio-controlled system using a 2.4Ghz Mesh network, the lights were able to quickly re-organize the network to include the additional lights, resulting in seamless operations for the airport.

While on-site, Aviation Renewables did a diagnostic check on the original lighting installed in 2013, and all lights reported healthy batteries. The batteries have an expected lifespan of 5-7 years with normal use, so this finding was expected.

The ICAO Simple Approach system was installed on frangible poles due to the grading in the approach area. Because of the lack of wiring and electricity required, the Simple Approach installation was completed in 4 hours, resulting in zero interruption to airport operations.

With over 30 Solar Series Solar Airfield Lighting systems installed worldwide, Aviation Renewables is the market leader for solar-powered PAPI systems; offering full design, installation, training, commissioning and support of each system.

A series of airfield improvements at South Bimini Airport (YBS) is making it easier for travelers to get to Bimini, the tiny pair of Bahaman islands located just 50 miles off the east coast of Florida. That's good news for beachgoers, sport fishermen and any other North or South American travelers who want to escape to a tropical paradise without spending a lot of time getting there.

It's also good news for Bimini's overall economy and the local workers who were employed during the multimillion-dollar construction effort. During the days of Prohibition, Bimini was a popular spot for speakeasies and liquor stores, with rumrunners stashing their cash in its numerous cays. These days, it's attracting a different kind of business. Genting Group, a Malaysian conglomerate, began investing in the islands with the development of a 750-acre beachfront resort and casino on North Bimini, and then opened a similar property adjacent to South Bimini International Airport (YBS) - both under the Resorts World brand.

Genting's South Bimini property boasts the closest offshore casino to the United States, and was mainly serviced by high-speed boat service from Miami when it opened in June 2013. With a daytime sea route in place, the resort owners soon turned their attention to facilitating 24-hour access to and from the island. YBS had daytime flight in place with Bahamasair, Silver Airways, Western Air and Flamingo Air; but its main 5,400-foot asphalt runway could not support nighttime traffic.

The solution involved a two-phase initiative that included a 900-foot runway extension, solar LED airfield lighting and other support elements such as a precision path indicator system, windcones and an automated weather observing system.

Aviation Renewables Installs two Solar Series LED PAPI systems in Lao PDR

For Immediate Release

Victoria BC, Canada. 5 May, 2015 --/

Aviation Renewables has recently returned from Lao PDR after delivering, installing and commissioning two Solar Series LED PAPI systems at a private airport. With a particularly steep approach due to surrounding terrain, the client sought a solution that would increase the safety margin on approach, and guide pilots to the threshold at the proper height to land and stop safely on the relatively short runway. As an existing runway without any electricity service, the airport sought a solution that would allow the runway to remain operational during installation by avoiding the need to lay conduit and electrical wiring.
