ADB Safegate has worked with airfield ground lighting (AGL) subcontractor CATIC-ENG China to supply, test, commission, and deliver light-emitting diode (LED) airfield lighting for the runway and taxiway at Colombo Bandaranaike International Airport in Sri Lanka.
ADB Safegate also provided LED Precision Approach Path Indicators and LED airfield signs; its MCR III constant current regulator; and an airfield lighting control and monitoring system (ALCMS).
The AGL equipment was delivered in April 2017 to replace legacy halogen fixtures, and is expected to be commissioned in October 2017.
"The transformation from halogen to LED lighting will enable energy efficiency and increased energy savings, and together with the ALCMS and SMGCS [surface movement guidance and control system] will help increase runway capacity," ADB Safegate said.
