Carmanah Solar LED Airfield Lights Chosen for Calgary International Airport Upgrade

Oct 5, 2010 Carmanah solar LED airfield lights are being installed at Calgary International Airport (YYC) as part of a massive facility upgrade. A new International Concourse, expected to be completed by 2015, will incorporate sustainable design principles, reduce energy consumption and minimize environmental impact.

The first phase installation includes Carmanah A704-5 solar LED airfield lights fitted with blue LEDs for taxiway edge lighting that can be easily relocated as airfield construction demands. Remote operation of the lights via a secure radio controller will allow the portable A704-5s to deliver the same functionality as permanent, hard-wired airfield lights operated fr om a control tower. The initial order, made through Carmanah Authorized Distributor, CP Lights, also included Carmanah A650 solar LED aviation/obstruction lights to mark perimeter fencing and several Carmanah solar LED airfield sign lights to improve airfield wayfinding during construction.

Carmanah’s solar LED lighting solutions were selected by the Calgary Airport Authority in a competitive bid situation. Completely self-contained and self-powered, Carmanah products are totally recyclable and feature replaceable battery packs, making them a natural choice for this sustainability-focused project. And Carmanah lights been field-proven to withstand the most extreme operating environments from equatorial heat to the harsh Canadian winter – a key consideration for Calgary wh ere daily low wintertime temperatures regularly reach -20°C (-4°F).
