VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA & ZAVENTUM, BELGIUM: Carmanah Technologies Corp. and ADB Airfield Solutions are expanding their partnership agreement to include Europe, South America, the Middle East/Africa and Asia Pacific.
The agreement links Carmanah and ADB worldwide, enabling both companies to proceed with a global partnership focused on complementing ADB's line of airfield lighting products with a range of solar powered LED airfield lights manufactured by Carmanah.
In November of 2009, Carmanah and ADB Airfield Solutions LLC (Ohio) announced a partnership to provide a line of solar LED airfield lighting in North America and the Caribbean. With sales and marketing activities well underway in this region, ADB and Carmanah will now work together to deliver an ADB-branded line of solar LED airfield lights to ADB’s worldwide customer base.
As a stand-alone lighting option, Carmanah solar-powered airfield lights can be quickly and easily deployed to challenging locations where the electrical infrastructure is incomplete or non-existent. The combination of ADB LED products and Carmanah solar power management technology will also enable the deployment of fully compliant lighting systems using solar as either the primary or back-up power source.
Christian Onselaere, President and CEO, ADB group said, “As a total airfield lighting solutions provider, we are delighted to add Carmanah’s solar LED airfield lights to our range of airfield lighting options.”
In Brussels last week to formalize the agreement, Carmanah CEO Ted Lattimore commented: “ADB is the industry leader in airfield lighting technology and innovation so we are incredibly proud that ADB has chosen Carmanah as their partner for solar powered airfield lights. Carmanah’s solar LED airfield lights are in use on commercial and defense airfields worldwide, and we look forward to expanding our market reach even further through our new partnership with ADB.”
