The $700K contract will provide a stand-alone system to Airport De Guiria in Venezuela.
Airfield light Carmanah Technologies Corp. has received an order to supply solar-powered portable airfield lights from Bariven S.A. in Venezuela. The order, valued at ~$700,000, will provide the tools to equip Venezuela's Airport De Guiria with a stand-alone system of solar-powered LED aviation lights.

Serving the Gulf of Paria, on the east coast of Venezuela, the Airport De Guiria offers convenient access for residents and visitors to this seaside community, while accommodating around-the-clock support and emergency response for local industrial enterprises including offshore oil developments within the region.

Airport De Guiria's new solar-powered lighting system includes Carmanah ICAO-compliant A704-5 runway edge lights, threshold lights, handheld radio controllers, A601 taxiway lights and supporting mounting hardware for permanent installation. Using the programmable interface, the user can set on/off times, brightness levels, flash patterns, infrared or visible outputs and more.
