Honeywell launches new airfield ground lighting manufacturing facility in India
The AGL will be manufactured at its 41,000-square-foot facility in Gurugram. The rapidly growing Indian aviation industry is expected to invest up to $12 billion into the sector and reach up to 220 airports by 2025 - up from the current 148. The Honeywell AGL solutions being developed and engineered in India are Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified and compliant to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.
The lights manufactured use a patented design of three-light windows, offer operational flexibility and high structural stability catering to the load stresses by aircraft, said the company. “The successful rollout of the first batch of FAA-certified LED Airfield Ground Lights from the Gurugram unit demonstrates Honeywell’s dedication to both India's aviation sector and the 'Make in India' ethos,” it added. The complete engineering and technology that caters to the needs of airports were incubated and developed by the Honeywell Technology Solutions team in India.
