ATL upgrades LED

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) has completed a retrofit of their existing airport apron lighting with high-mast LED lighting, which will enhance nighttime operations with higher illuminance levels and better light coverage on the apron while reducing lamp replacement and maintenance costs.

The Airport is working with Bright Light Systems in partnership with The Jon Smith Group on this program. The new LED lights offer more than 50% less energy consumption than the previous 1000-watt high-pressure sodium lighting system. According to a statement, more than 750 energy-saving LED lights are now installed on 80-foot poles across concourses T, A, B, C, D, and E, providing enhanced safety for pilots (due to reduced glare), ground personnel, and baggage handlers around the aircraft and throughout the ramp area.

“The new LED lights from Bright Light Systems provide greater visibility and safety for our employees working around the aircraft while generating important operational savings for the airport,” said Monique Richard, ATL Station Manager for Southwest Airlines. “The maintenance and energy savings along with improved lighting levels in the ramp area is a win-win situation for both Southwest Airlines and the Atlanta airport.”
