WEST LAFAYETTE, In. - Carmanah Technologies announced that it has received a follow up order through Dubai-based Gesolar -- the company's authorized aviation distributor in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) -- to supply additional solar-powered portable airfield lights for civilian airfield applications.

This latest order, according to the company, valued at more than $1.2 million, provides the tools to enhance visibility and safety at remote airfields using stand-alone LED (light emitting diode) lights.

The order includes Carmanah A704-5 runway edge lights, approach lights and threshold lights, as well as A601 taxiway lights, mounting hardware and wireless handheld radio remote-control equipment. A programmable interface enables the user to set on/off times, brightness levels, flash patterns, infrared or visible outputs and more, the company said.
