Solar Runway Lighting for Private Airfield in Poland

S4GA delivered pilot-controlled Solar Runway Lighting to private airfield located in Poland, Europe.

Private aerodrome located in Poland and occasionally used for flight operations. For operating in during cloudy weather, in rainy day or at night – a runway illumination has been required. In Europe, it is a common situation so the Customer needed AGL urgently to start flight operations as soon as possible. They contacted S4GA as trusted AGL manufacturer with a proven reputation.

Solar vs. Wired RWY Lighting – Why Customer Chosen S4GA?

  • only 3 months for complete project implementation –  from placing the order to installation
  • NO electricians required to do maintenance – it can be performed by the airport personnel

Why 6.6A Runway Lighting Did Not Fit?

Traditional wired runway lighting powered by 6.6A electrical grid did not fit Customer’s requirements due to high investments and lead time:

  • high expenditures on AGL design, ground trenching works, cables, AGL fittings and other electrical infrastructure
  • high electricity bills afterwards
  • maintenance of wired AGL required electricians available 24/7 onsite
  • at least 1 year required for complete project implementation.
