Solar Runway Lights in Ivory Coast: Solutions for Gold Mining in Africa

S4GA solar runway lights have been supplied to a gold mine airstrip in Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire), West Africa.

Runway lights supplied to Ivory Coast operate 365 days a year on solar energy. No electricity required to run the system. No trenching works, no electrical infrastructure required to install the system. All lighting fixtures are connected wirelessly via S4GA mesh network.

The system is pilot-controlled: lights can be activated remotely from the air (via VHF radio) and from land (via UR-201 Control & Monitoring Unit installed at ATC Tower or in maintenance room).
