Trinidad’s Piarco International Airport has installed a new lighting system using solar-powered light-emitting diodes (LEDs).

The Carmanah lights work through a systems interface and cost $300,000 to install and comprised A704-5 runway-edge lights, approach lights and threshold lights, as well as A702 taxiway lights.

The cost also included the mounting hardware and wireless handheld radio remote-control equipment .

The portable solar-LED lights are more energy efficient than conventional runway lights, according to Carmana, and are quick and easy to install and operate accurately in most challenging environmental conditions.

Solar-powered lighting systems offer service through a range of weather conditions during conventional systems failure because each light is powered by an individual grid.

Piarco International Airport is Trinidad’s largest airport in the Caribbean that features domestic and international traffic.
