The United Nations Development Program, located in Mexico City, has purchased Carmanah’s Model 601 obstruction lights for installation on several Anemometric towers throughout rural Mexico. The “Electrical Research Institute” (Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas or IIE), located in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico, will be responsible for the execution of the project, including the installation of Carmanah’s obstruction lights on various wind towers. The Wind Energy project is dedicated to bringing renewable power to outlying regions of rural Mexico. For more information about the United Nations Development Programme, visit http://www.undp.org.

Carmanah’s Solar Powered, Self-contained Marking Light

The Model 601 is a completely integrated, self-contained unit that does not require any external electrical source or bulb/battery replacement for its entire 5 year lifespan. The Model 601 offers cost-effective performance. Based on an independent cost analysis, they will pay for themselves within their first year of operation – in the form of reduced installation, maintenance and servicing costs.
It is also designed to be extremely durable, waterproof and virtually indestructible.

Carmanah has supplied obstruction lights in more than 40 countries to-date, for marking applications including wind energy masts, crane infrastructure, telecommunications towers, general buildings and weather masts.
