Coast Guard signs deal with Carmanah Technologies

Posted on

The Coast Guard placed a $600,000 order for hundreds of solar-LED marine lanterns from Canadian-based Carmanah Technologies.

Replacing older incandescent lanterns, the new 701-5 and 704-5 lanterns will be deployed as aids to navigation across 19 regions, including New Orleans; Galveston and Corpus Christi, Texas; and Mobile, Ala. A portion also will be stored at strategic locations for emergency response.

“While providing reliable day-to-day service as bright and effective aids to navigation, this shipment of solar LED lanterns also offers a stand-alone lighting alternative that can be deployed wherever they’re needed at a moment’s notice,” said Mat Regier, Carmanah sales channel manager for the Southeast, in a statement.

Carmanah solar-powered lanterns are in use around the world, both as permanent aids to navigation and for emergency preparedness and disaster-response applications.

    Very impressive! Especially with segments of the US boat market down 40 percent OVER last year, which was supposedly the worst year ever in history, that the US GOVERNMENT should use a Canadian lighting company?

    Get your head out of the sand.  America is not an island.  The USA may have started this global recession but it cannot dig its self out out of the hole without the help of other countries.  You are not alone in this mess.
