Midstream Lighting is to launch a mobile airfield lighting tower at inter airport Europe 2017 in Munich, fitted with specialised asymmetric light-emitting diode (LED) projectors designed to minimise glare and eliminate upward light.
The tower is equipped with an extendable arm that can be raised up to 9 m in height, and a diesel generator with capacity to run for 200 hours. Using two of the mobile towers, a Code F stand can be commissioned to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 14 requirements.
A number of airports have already ordered the system, including Gatwick, Luxembourg, and Pisa. The tower can be employed to support a remote apron, temporary aircraft stands, infrequently used airstrips, and locations with power supply problems.
Midstream has additionally expanded its range of LED lighting products to include a new line of obstruction lights, and a high-power floodlight designed to replace 2,000 W metal halide systems for airports.
The company has reported several new contracts, such as a recent award to supply the apron lighting system for Durban King Shaka International Airport in South Africa, including a wireless control system; an order from Darwin International Airport in Australia for an LED apron floodlighting system; and contracts from Zaragoza Airport, Spain and Rome Fiumicino Airport, Italy.
