VICTORIA, British Columbia -- Carmanah Technologies (TSX: CMH) (Pink Sheets: CMHXF) in partnership with ADB Airfield Solutions announce the release of the solar-powered Helipad Kit; the first comprehensive and stand-alone wireless helipad light and navigational aid system. The Helipad Kit features ADB wireless solar engine power systems, visual navigation aids and Carmanah wireless solar-powered airfield lighting technology.

This flexibility to respond quickly and efficiently to emergency situations marks the Helipad Kit ideal for commercial airports, armed forces, emergency medical services, fire departments, hospitals and coast guards applications. The Carmanah/ADB Helipad Kit consists of everything needed to improve the safety and visibility of virtually any size of ground, rooftop, offshore or remote helipad, including: wireless solar-powered perimeter lights, approach lights, ID and obstruction beacons, flood lights, windcone, directional signs, wireless handheld controllers and all of the mounting and deploying hardware required therein.

Together, Carmanah/ADB deliver total airfield and helipad solutions, a direct example of which being the new Carmanah/ADB solar-powered Helipad Kit. Carmanah CEO Ted Lattimore agrees.
