CALKIT Zimbabwe

In 2001 Metalite supplied a CALKIT™ system with additional portable PAPIs and portable approach lights to the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe for use during the construction stage of the runway and taxiway rehabilitation project at Harare Airport, which are still in active use this day.The rehabilitation of the aircraft pavements and fixed airfield lighting at the airport involved extended periods of operational difficulties when the fixed systems were unusable. Metalite's portable runway lighting system was specifically purchased to allow the runway to remain operational throughout the construction period and while the fixed lighting system was being replaced.CALKIT™ can support runway, taxiway and parking apron applications as well as being used to mark parts of the airfield that are closed or under construction.
