Carmanah-Sabik LED Lanterns Deployed to Mark Oil Spill Containment Booms

Carmanah Technologies, in collaboration with Sabik Oy, has supplied Carmanah/Sabik solar light-emitting diode (LED) marine lanterns to support oil spill containment work in the Gulf of Mexico. The lanterns help in maintaining the marine traffic while the cleaning and the containment works are carried out in the area.

A number of yellow and white marine lanterns have already been installed in places such as waterways and open bays where oil spillage creates a hazard to navigational safety. Carmanah has partnered with a Houston-based manufacturer to deliver additional lanterns in upcoming days. During Hurricane Katrina, Carmanah has provided advanced solar LED lighting products to manage marine, air and road traffic while the rebuilding efforts were being carried out.

Carmanah’s Chief Executive Officer, Ted Lattimore, stated that the marine lanterns integrate both LED technology and solar power to deliver improved, reliable and continuous performance.

Jeff Sandel, Carmanah distributor, stated that Carmanah/Sabik LED lanterns provide a cost-effective solution and can be used in a number of operating conditions.
