Solar Runway Lighting Delivered to Alaska by Aviation Renewables
Solar Runway Lighting. Aviation Renewables has been awarded a contract to supply solar runway lighting and reflective taxiway markers for emergency Medevac flight operations at a remote community in southwestern Alaska, USA. Due to an unexpected failure of the electrical runway lighting system during a Medevac operation, the community tribal committee consulted Aviation Renewables for a cost-effective portable runway lighting system that could be used for emergency, temporary or permanent operations.
Solar Runway Lighting and Reflective Taxiway Marking System - Complete Solution
The solar runway lighting system supplied by Aviation Renewables includes runway edge lighting, threshold lighting and reflective taxiway markers. During the long dark winter, plug-in chargers will maintain readiness of the solar runway lighting system using grid electricity. The taxiways are marked with the iSeries reflective taxiway marker. These markers are a cost-effective, FAA-compliant method of delineating taxiway and apron areas for night operations. Due to the high levels of snowfall during the winter months, the iSeries reflective taxiway markers will include portable bases in order to remove the taxiway markers during snow plow operations and replace them thereafter.
With a limited budget and urgent timeline, Aviation Renewables was able to design and deliver a solar runway lighting and reflective taxiway marking system within days of award. With a community population of less than 500 members, Aviation Renewables looks forward to supporting the solar runway lighting system and reflective taxiway markers for decades to come.
