Portable Airfield Lighting. Aviation Renewables has been awarded a contract to supply, deliver, train and commission two portable LED airfield lighting systems for a central East African Civil Aviation Department. After careful consultation with the aviation authority, each portable LED airfield lighting system will consist of LED runway lighting, LED threshold lighting, LED taxiway lighting, LED REILs (Runway End Identifier Lights), LED PAPIs and remote control operating systems in order to ensure safe operations and proper system deployment.
The client required pilot training for day and night landing and take off operations. At the completion of a factory acceptance test, delivery of each portable LED airfield lighting system allowed the East African Civil Aviation Authority to provide the training requirement. In addition, the Civil Aviation Authority will retain the ability to respond to unforeseen emergency situations such as electrical power failures, natural disasters and necessary maintenance requirements such as construction works, electrical airfield ground lighting maintenance, secondary back up runway lighting or training exercises.
After careful consultation with the client, Aviation Renewables designed a portable LED runway lighting system. The portable nature of the LED runway lighting system and the LED PAPI provides maximum flexibility for the client. The portable LED PAPI can be used to quickly displace a threshold when main- tenance activities or temporary obstructions are present. The portable lighting on a street-legal trailer can easily be towed to a different airport should the need arise. Having the portable LED lighting system in the management network will increase the reliability of all airports, not just the airport at which the lights are stored.
