New lights ensure bright future at Calgary

The ability to withstand the harsh Canadian winter when temperatures regularly plummet to -20°C was one of the key reasons behind Calagary International Airport's decision to install Carmanah solar LED lights on its airfield. 

The ability to withstand the harsh Canadian winter when temperatures regularly plummet to -20°C was one of the key reasons behind Calagary International Airport's decision to install Carmanah solar LED lights on its airfield.

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 from a control tower.

The initial order also includes 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.

A new runway, airfield enhancements and a state-of-the-art 22-gate international concourse are the key projects of an ongoing C$2.1 billion capital development programme at the gateway.
