With their recent CASA approval for RPT operations, Brisbane West Wellcamp has become the first green-field airport in Australia using all LED light fixtures on their runway and taxiways. Partnering with Safegate for the supply and install of these LED lights, the airport can look forward to reduced power consumption and maintenance costs compared to a halogen installation. ADB SAFEGATE´s , Steve Rutland, noted that ADB SAFEGATE had specially developed the medium intensity runway light for the Australian market.
“This is a new fitting specific for Australian regulations and conditions. We looked at a lamp retrofit for an existing fitting, but quickly realised that this would not deliver on what our clients would expect in terms of power savings and reliability. The Safegate IDM5008 runway edge light has full CASA MOS139 certification for medium intensity operation and is the only fitting on the market developed for this application for scratch.”
ADB SAFEGATE drew on its wide experience in LED airfield lighting to produce the fitting based on established technology. “Australia has a very unique requirement in both light output and environmental conditions” said Mattias Hallberg, SAFEGATE’s product leader for airfield lighting. “We knew that developing a new fitting with our proven LED electronics would give the best performance, and it is very pleasing to see such a great end result at Brisbane West Wellcamp.”
