Saving energy is the main discussion these days. Usually, airports consume 70% for electricity and 30% for heating, all these meaning up to 180M kWh per year.
Saving energy is mandatory for reducing costs.
A global goal for airports by 2050 is to reduce CO2 emissions by 50% from their levels in 2005 and this means developing a performant energy management strategy.
One of the top energy consumers into an airport is the runway lighting system. Signalight airport lights are developed for a low or medium intensity, to have the possibility of controlling the lighting on three levels: 10, 30 and 100%. Also, our lights are low energy consumers.
Runway lights – what are they good at?
All the airports providing flight operations need to be equipped with a complete lighting system, helping pilots to do landing and takeoff safely, at night, even in low visibility conditions.
Runway lights need to be ICAO compliant (aviation international regulations) and they should be clearly visible and work continuously.
The airport runway is the most important, being the area where aircraft take off and land. The beginning and end of the runway and the landing point must be lit for the best marking during airport procedures.
Also, lighting is mandatory at night and in any low visibility conditions. The runway lights are of different types, with their own role and importance.
Our Vista system for airport lighting has received the Innovation Award at Inter Airport Europe.
At Signalight we have complete lighting systems and products for airports runway lighting.
