Glasgow Airport decided to upgrade all apron lighting to LED before the opening of the Commonwealth Games 2014. Midstream was selected via a competitive tender process to supply all the LED floodlights to ensure compliance with CAP 168 on the apron areas.
Midstream had to ensure that the project completed on time to welcome the athletes to the city of Glasgow, and the project was delivered from design to commission in under 3 months.
Glasgow Airport was the first major international airport worldwide to convert all apron lighting to LED technology.
London Gatwick Airport is the busiest single-runway airport in the world.
Midstream has been the preferred supplier to LGW for 3 years where over three phase projects we supplied over one thousand LED floodlights to various apron areas around the airport, including a new build Pier 1 which required special consideration due to the proximity of the runway (OLS restrictions).
London Gatwick is the first major European hub airport to have a fully LED-lit and EASA compliant apron.
London City Airport is undergoing a transformation of the passenger experience, which includes expansion, and improvement of the terminal building. As part of this process, LCY wanted to renew the building mounted apron floodlighting to take advantage of new developments in LED technology.
Midstream was asked to deliver a solution that gave maximum illumination on the PIPO Apron and under the aircraft wings with minimal glare to pilots.
Thanks to our unique and proprietary optic system, the Titan 320 was installed with minimal tilting at 8m height on the terminal building. The feedback from Pilots and Ground Staff shows that the lighting levels have been improved with significant decrease in glare levels.
Quito International Airport, opened in 2013, is one of the busiest airports in South America.
The Aviation Authority of Ecuador wanted to improve the lighting levels on the apron and increase uniformity to a ratio of 2:1.
Midstream was selected via an international tender as the supplier to design, supply, install and commission a new LED system for all apron areas. Working together with a local contractor, we commissioned the final stands in January 2017.
The lighting levels have increased by 50% and the Uniformity levels have doubled.
Quito International Airport is the first airport in South America to convert all the apron lighting to LED technology.
Palermo Airport is located in the Capital of Sicily, one of Italy’s great holiday destinations.
Midstream was contracted to supply new LED floodlighting as a retrofit to existing infrastructure consisting of 35m raise and lower winch operated masts.
Do to the compact and lightweight characteristics of the Titan floodlight, the retrofit was carried out without any modifications to the crown in a “plug and play” fashion.
The Airport also wanted to decrease the lighting levels by 50% during hours of reduced operation and this was achieved via a remote switch that turned off half of the floodlights. This method avoided the need to invest into a new control system.
Rome Fiumicino Airport is the main airport of Italy. Midstream is the preferred supplier for LED apron lighting systems. Midstream is responsible for design and supply of floodlighting to comply with new EASA regulation.
Floodlights are supplied with DALI protocol to connect with the existing control system in a plug and play fashion.
To cater to different client requirements, Midstream supplies the whole range of floodlights – from 170W to 700W.
