“ECLIPSE” LIGHT - DESIGNED FOR WIND FARMS
In order to meet the ever-increasing need for greener energy and considering the vision of the provincial government of Alberta to develop more wind and solar energy, Technostrobe has partnered with Borea Construction to install wind farm beacons on the first large-scale wind power plant approved in Saskatchewan
The project called the Blue Hills is actually the seventh private wind energy project in Saskatchewan.
In response to Transport Canada requirements and project specifications for wind towers reaching above 150m of “tip height”, we installed a double lens beacon (instead of 2 redundant beacons) at the top of the 30 towers as well as our Eclipse model for the side lights. All lights are flashing in a synchronized manner. This equipment is designed to reduce the total cost of the required lighting as well as the cost of future maintenance.
The side light ECLIPSE solution is installed from inside the tower mast. It is therefore easy to install, to connect electrically and to position because it mounts flush with the wall of the turbine. This design saves the wind turbine owner the expense of hiring a contract crane operator if a light needs to be replaced or repaired in the future. Additionally, because the unit is set in place using magnets, the system requires no screws and was designed to perfectly fit the previous lighting system's holes in the tower (fits in a 3⁄4 inch hole). If the hole is bigger, we provide the necessary bushings for a smooth and secure install
- Can be installed at tower’s manufacturing facility or onsite
- Steady burning or flashing
