Sealite Is First To Deliver GPS Synchronised Solar Marine Lanterns In Guatemala
Port Quetzal is Guatemala’s most important and largest Pacific Ocean Port, providing both cargo traffic and a stop-off point for cruise liners. The Port has been in the process of expansion and the Sealite installation makes Port Quetzal, Guatemala one of the most advanced and modern in Central America.
Sealite’s Poseidon-1750 Ocean Buoys with the world’s most popular and versatile solar marine lanterns, the SLC-310 with GPS Synchronisation have been installed to provide safe navigation for large vessels and local mariners. The Guatemala installation is part of an expansion plan for the logistics and port development of the region, and represents a historical and significant change in the care and safety of shipping in the region.
In November 2012, Sealite introduced GPS Synchronisation as a standard feature in the SLC-310 and SLC-410 solar marine lanterns for increased safety, conspicuity, and a generally better mariner experience. Using an infra-red controller, operators can enable or disable the synchronisation feature.
Sealite Authorised Distributor, BARCO LIMPIO S.A. headed up the bid for the project, with the support of Sealite Business Development Manager for Latin America, Mr Bruce Edgar. “Sealite innovative GPS Synchronisation technology, along with quality buoy and solar marine lantern products, ensured the most important Port in Guatemala is also one of the safest and most advanced in Central America.” Mr Bruce Edgar comments.
