Carmanah’s Solar LED Lighting Division is working on a wind-energy project on the Galapagos Islands to outfit an installation of wind turbines with its environmentally friendly solar-powered obstruction lights. Carmanah’s A702 obstruction marking lights will be installed at the top of each wind turbine to improve safety for air traffic flying near the Islands.
Working with one of the largest wind energy companies in the world, this is the second order of Carmanah marking lights for this particular project. Project coordinators cited Carmanah’s reputation for reliability and customer service as the main reasons for continuing to choose Carmanah lights.
As one of the most unique and ecologically sensitive regions in the world, conservation efforts and environmental friendly practices are of particular importance in the Galapagos Islands. Creating no greenhouse gas emissions, and requiring no connection to the electrical grid, Carmanah’s solar obstruction marking lights are an ideal solution for the Islands. In addition to being environmentally friendly, Carmanah’s A702 lights provide minimal disturbance to the habitats of nesting birds and surrounding wildlife.
