McCarran Airport installs new LED lights to improve visibility

Installation of the new lighting will be handled by Helix Electric.

LAS replaced its previous high-pressure sodium lighting with energy-efficient LED fixtures on more than 170 lighting poles near the airport’s gates.

Installation of new LED lights will enable workers on the ramp to see more clearly and reduces glare for pilots as they manoeuvre aircraft in and out of the busy Las Vegas airport.

The new lighting system cuts energy consumption by up to 50% while improving lighting levels. It will also minimise maintenance costs with a ten-year parts and labour warranty.

McCarran International Airport aviation, operations deputy director James Chrisley said: “As we embarked upon this project, the primary goals for McCarran were to maximise energy savings while increasing lighting and visibility with minimal glare.”

Musco’s new LED system will clearly light the airspace similarly to daylight without creating increased light pollution around the airport.

The new lighting is expected to save $1.3m in energy and maintenance costs over the next decade.
