Carmanah Provides Solar-Powered LED Systems to Marines
Carmanah Technologies has received a $767,270 order to supply FP-50 solar-powered LED general lighting systems for the US Marine Corps. This order will be supplied through a US-based contractor. The FP-50 units are scheduled for final installation at an air base in the Middle East during September and October, 2006.
This order is a result of a field trial of nine FP-50 systems at two different USMC bases in the Middle East. This latest order of FP-50 systems will be used for apron floodlighting, taxiway/runway intersection lighting, building lighting, path lighting and general illumination.
In addition to these FP-50 systems, the USMC currently operates more than 260 Carmanah GI-102 solar-powered LED spotlights at two airbases in the Middle East. In total, more than 6000 of Carmanah’s solar LED aviation lights, spotlights and floodlights are now in use by the USMC.
