Aviation Renewables Delivers Portable LED Runway Lighting System to the Caribbean
For Immediate Release
Victoria BC, Canada. 11 November, 2016 --/
Aviation Renewables has been awarded a contract to deliver a portable LED runway lighting system to a major international airport located in the Caribbean. The autonomous runway lighting system includes runway edge and threshold lights stored within a trailer, ready for quick deployment in the case of a power failure to the main runway lighting system. Working with Aviation Renewables, the client was able to select the best solution available capable of meeting their emergency, temporary and standby runway lighting needs while meeting budget and delivery timelines.
The emergency runway lighting system was selected as a stand-alone autonomous trailer mounted solution offering the best combination of convenience, performance and quick-deployment. The lights will remain within the trailer, fully charged at all times, until they are needed at a moment’s notice to supplement the airport runway lighting operations for either planned or unplanned events.
Due to the risk of hurricanes throughout the Caribbean region, the airport identified their conventional powered airport lighting system as a possible failure point in the event of an emergency, natural disaster or during construction operations. The autonomous LED runway lighting system will mitigate this risk allowing uninterrupted, 24/7 operations to continue even after hurricane damage or black out failure to the main runway lighting system. Aviation Renewables will be on site to train the Airport Authority on the operation of the system and commission the system in the fall of 2016.
