Carmanah Receives Over One Million In Orders From US Coast Guard
Victoria, Canada (SPX) Oct 05, 2010
Carmanah Technologies Corporation has received orders totaling over $1.1 million in recent weeks from the United States Coast Guard as part of the Coast Guard's seasonal stock-up.
More than 2,500 Carmanah/Sabik M700 series solar LED marine lanterns are scheduled for delivery to Coast Guard stations in 25 US states along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, and the Mississippi, Gulf of Mexico and Great Lakes regions in the coming weeks.
The orders are part of an ongoing Coast Guard initiative to replace incandescent lanterns with self-contained solar LED lanterns.
Durable, reliable and ready for immediate deployment, Carmanah/Sabik solar LED marine lanterns are widely used by coast guards and port authorities worldwide, both as permanent aids-to-navigation lighting solutions, and for emergency preparedness and disaster-response applications.
Carmanah/Sabik solar LED marine lanterns are an ideal choice for temporary or emergency lighting applications. Self-powered, self-contained and virtually indestructible, the lanterns can be installed in minutes and will operate maintenance-free for years.
"The US Coast Guard was Carmanah's first customer and the excellent relationship we have continued to enjoy with them over the years is a testament to Carmanah's commitment to continuously advancing and refining our technology to meet the high expectations of this very discerning customer," said Ted Lattimore, Carmanah CEO.
Lattimore also cited recent standing offer awards from the Canadian Coast Guard for Carmanah/Sabik solar LED marine lanterns.
Over a decade ago, Carmanah Technologies Corporation developed the very first solar LED lantern for the US Coast Guard and has continued to work with maritime authorities worldwide to develop best-in-class, self-contained solar LED aids-to-navigation lighting solutions that meet the technical specifications and quality standards of the marine industry.
A strategic partnership with Finland-based marine lighting pioneer Sabik Oy, announced in March of 2010 further strengthens both companies' positions in this highly technical market and expands their ability to provide the performance, reliability and functionality demanded by customers such as the US and Canadian Coast Guards.
