Musco Lighting has announced that it has installed a State-of-the-Art LED System at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) that is set to enhance efficiency and streamline operations.
“We’re very proud to have partnered with Vancouver International Airport on this important project,” said Jeff Rogers, President of Musco World.
“We’ve designed systems to meet the unique needs of pilots, passengers, and flight controllers. When you see the brightness and even distribution of light our system delivers, without creating glare and preserving the darkness immediately surrounding the airport, it’s really impressive.”
The installation of the lighting system is set to be complete by the end of the year. The new lights will be custom designed and retrofitted onto the airport’s existing poles and the whole system comes with a 10-year warranty that covers parts and labour.
“We strive to be a leader in environmental management. In 2015, YVR developed a long-term energy plan that aims to reduce energy consumption and invest in alternative energy solutions,” said Don Ehrenholz, Vice President, Engineering and Environment, Vancouver Airport Authority.
“This new apron lighting is also adaptive based on gate usage, meaning that lighting levels will increase and decrease based on the gate schedule in order to save power when not in use. It is expected to save 715,000 kWhrs/year – that’s the equivalent of removing up to 80 residential households per year from the local utility grid.”
