14 Oct Solar Series LED Wind Cones & LED Airfield Lighting System Installed in Guyana
Aviation Renewables was tasked with the design of a solar airfield lighting system for the extension of the runway at Ogle International Airport, located in Guyana, South America. The solar airfield lighting system features advanced LED lighting and power solutions that operate from a radio frequency control system.
Aviation Renewables was tasked with the design and installation of a solar airfield lighting system featuring solar runway, threshold, approach, taxiway lighting and Solar Series wind cones. The runway, threshold, approach and taxiway lights are all controlled by a single command and control system via LCD. Because of the redundant wireless, RF network communicate the command and control signals to the extremities of the airfield, operating with ease throughout the undulating surface and terrain. The Solar Series wind cones incorporate an FAA LED L810 with photocell control and a Solar Series RMS engine for self contained operation, easy installation and no maintenance over the next 5 years.
Solar Series LED Wind Cones
Working with Aviation Renewables, installation for the Solar Series wind cones and lights was achieved within days. With a fast approaching inauguration after the completion of the runway extension, Ogle International Airport was able to conduct runway operations during the installation process due to the elimination of infrastructure, portability and a self-contained design. Once the solar LED airfield lighting system was completely installed, both day and night operations were open to Liat Airlines. The completed project was estimated to be 20% of the cost of installing, operating and maintaining a conventional airfield lighting system.
