Sealite Awarded Second Contract To Supply Solar Marine Lanterns, Suez Canal Authority, Egypt
The Suez Canal is one of the most important waterways in the world and it is one of the world’s most heavily used shipping lanes.
The Suez Canal Authority (SCA) has fitted almost 200 sites with SLC310 Solar Marine Lanterns, with the assistance of Sealite Distributor, Harmony Group. This is in addition to a previous installation of a similar size in 2007. The second installation of this magnitude is a testament to the quality of Sealite’s Solar Marine Lanterns – known for their longevity and to withstand some of the harshest marine environments.
Prior to the installation the SCA inspectors Eng. Helmi Abd El Wahab & Eng. Ashraf Hammad visited Sealite Head Office and attended factory acceptance testing and training, with Sealite’s John Corio hosting the visit.
Sealite Business Development Manager for EMEA, John Corio, commented “It was a pleasure to be able to show the SCA inspectors Sealite’s impressive facilities and extensive range of capabilities during their visit. Both inspectors went home happy in the knowledge that they had made the right decision in choosing Sealite’s SLC310 self-contained lanterns.”
The SLC310 Marine Lantern is a robust, completely self-contained Solar LED Lantern specifically designed to withstand the tough marine environment, providing years of reliable and low-maintenance service. The SLC310 also has the highest power to light output ratio of any lantern on the market, making it brighter and more efficient.
Harmony Group, a valued Sealite Distributor, won the tender for both of the installations and assisted in all aspects of both projects.
“SCA had no complaints with the installation of the Solar Marine Lanterns and were happy there was no need for servicing any of the lanterns installed in 2007”, consultant Eng. EMAD ABD EL MALEK Harmony Group commented.
