Marine Aids to Navigation

The world is on the move. More people and products are transported around the globe by sea, air and land. Ships are larger. Ports are competing to host them. Squeezing larger ships into existing channels requires better signal lights to help pilots to guide the ships safely.

This is our world. Vega designs and builds specialized signal lights for safe movement - by sea, air and land. Some of the most challenging waterways in the world are marked by PEL Sector Lights made by Vega. More details for Marine Aids to Navigation application, please see our Case Studies.

Lighthouses are Changing

The days of traditional lighthouses are almost over. No longer does a mariner rely on a landfall light shining 20 miles out to sea to know his position. Modern satellite navigation systems resolve to within a few metres, anywhere on the earth's surface.

Lighthouse towers may be beautiful but are costly to maintain. Modern lanterns using electronic sources (LEDs) do not require such structures, require no maintenance and operate more reliably.
