PROJECT CASE STUDY

Palmero Airport (PMO)

PMO is based in Sicily – one of Italy’s most-loved holiday hot-spots. It’s also called Falcone Borsellino Airport in memory of two leading anti-mafia judges, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, who were both assassinated by the local mafia in 1992.

The challenge:
PMO was looking to take advantage of the practical and financial benefits of LED lighting. So, they asked us, the experts to step in.

Our solution:
The project had very tough financial targets. This meant a retrofit solution, using the existing 35m raise and lower winch operated masts, was the best approach. Thanks to being both compact and lightweight, our Titan series was perfect for the job. And no modifications to the crown in a ‘plug and play’ fashion were needed.

To help save even more money, a remote switch system was installed so half of the floodlights could be easily turned off when less lighting was needed. This also meant no new controls for the overall project had to be developed.
