- Location: Eskisehir- Türkiye
- Year: 2018
- Obstruction Lights Type: 1 pcs MIOL-B (2.000 cd, medium intensity, red light)
- Number of Chimneys: 1
The project name is “Çimsa Eskisehir Factory – Chimney Aviation Obstruction Light Project”.
Stand alone system is used in this project. There is no need to use a big control panels for just one light. By this way, the aviation obstruction light system has less cost.
Chimneys provide ventilation for hot flue gases and smokes. They are vertical structures such as, for example, Eskisehir Cimsa Cement Factory in Turkey.
Although many kind of industrial facilities have tall chimneys most of the chimneys with heights of 200 meters and more are a part of thermal thermal power stations (especially coal-fired power stations).Only few smelters, steel mills, chemical factories, petrochemistry and oil refineries use such tall chimneys.
There is no single standard defining minimum mandatory requirements governing design and installation of aviation obstruction lighting; on the other hand the most common and widespread regulations are ICAO’s and FAA’s.
