LED Runway Lighting System Sustaining 24-7 ICAO Compliant Operation
An LED Runway Lighting System powered by solar energy was chosen as the best solution for a coastal airfield located in East Africa, in order to support 24/7 operations. Working with Aviation Renewables, the company selected a fully ICAO-compliant Solar LED Runway Lighting System that will support operations during night and inclement weather. Aviation Renewables was on site to manage the installation, commissioning and training of the system.
The customer required 24/7 operations at their airport as part of their risk management for Medevac situations and charter aircraft operations. A fully ICAO-compliant system would be required to satisfy the operations, safety and insurance requirements. Given that the airport sits in a residential area, the system needed special security requirements to mitigate the risk of theft. In addition, the solar LED runway lighting system needed to be easily removed and re-installed at a new airport closer to the customer’s facility when the construction is completed in 2019.
