Bright Light Systems supplied high-mast LED lighting for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Int. Airport
29 November 2018
US-based Bright Light Systems (BLS) has supplied high-mast LED lighting for a retrofit of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s (ATL) existing airport apron lighting. Together with The Jon Smith Group (JSG), BLS has installed Nova HM Series LED lights to upgrade the high-mast units illuminating the airport’s parking apron. The upgrade is expected to result in energy savings of more than 50% when compared to the previous 1,000 W high-pressure sodium lighting system. ATL has switched to the new lighting to improve safety for pilots, ground personnel, and baggage handlers around the aircraft and throughout the ramp area. Under the contract, BLS installed more than 750 LED lights on 80-ft poles across concourses T, A, B, C, D, and E. According to the company, the new LED lights will offer higher luminance levels and better light coverage on the apron to support night operations.
