The Chicago company provided runway lights to Atlanta International


Multi Electric Mfg. closed out 2016 by providing LED airfield ground lighting solutions to the world’s largest airport in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Chicago company provided Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport with both inset and elevated LED runway lights for the touchdown zone (LIRZ), runway entrance (LITG), runway centerline and rapid exit taxiway (LIRL), and runway edge, threshold and end (LERE).

Atlanta International has been the world’s busiest airport for passenger traffic since 1998, and the busiest for airplane takeoffs and landings since 2005. Most of its flights — about 1 million per year — are domestic to the U.S.

The airport’s choice of LED represents a global trend away from halogen toward longer-lasting, more energy-efficient technology.

OCEM, the group that comprises Multi Electric Mfg.,  has invested heavily in researching ways to achieve maximum energy savings with LED, achieving reductions in energy consumption of more than 76 percent compared to fully halogen systems.

The Atlanta project shows once again that Multi Electric Mfg.’s products satisfy both international ICAO regulations and domestic FAA regulations.
