JetBlue Retrofits Lighting in Hangar, Training Center

October 3, 2012 By Linda Hardesty

JetBlue Airways selected MaxLite’s HighMax High Output CFLs for a series of retrofit projects in its Orlando-based hangar and training center. Inside the JetBlue Airways Hangar, 75 HighMax 200-watt CFL lamps were used to replace 75 1000-watt metal halide lamps in the high bay fixtures. Offering a substantial energy savings, the new luminaires were installed in the sheet metal shop, the seat shop that repairs airplane seats, and the area used for preparing engines for replacements.

In addition, 29 HighMax 200-watt CFL fixtures replaced 29 1000-watt metal halide fixtures over the apron, in front of the hangar where employees work on the aircraft. And 50 HighMax 60-watt CFL lamps replaced 50 400-watt metal halide lamps in the parking lot that is used by employees who work in the hangar and training center. The heavy-duty lamps for outdoor applications were retrofitted in fixtures attached to 20-foot poles.

City Electric of Orlando specified the MaxLite lamps, which completed a multitude of tests and conversions by JetBlue Airways.
