Carmanah has received an additional order from the US Marine Corps for 135 units of Carmanah’s Model A601 solar LED obstruction lights to be installed at the US Air Base in Iraq.

With no access to a conventional power source, the US Air Base was not able to power obstruction lighting throughout the large airfield environment without some form of alternative energy. Carmanah’s fully self-contained, autonomous obstruction lights were the perfect solution and they will be used to mark airfield obstructions for fixed wing and rotorcraft operations around the base.

Carmanah’s Model A601 is the world’s most advanced solar-powered LED aviation light with 2 miles of visibility. The unit is field proven to be extremely durable, reliable and maintenance free for up to 5 years.

Carmanah is the leading supplier for all portable solar LED lighting solutions for US Defense and Marine Corps Operations. The US Marine Corps. alone has deployed more than 4,000 of Carmanah’s solar LED airfield lights throughout Iraq.
