Grupo Lindley participates in the renewal of Faro Mama in Lisbon
The Lindley Group recently participated in the remodeling of the Farol da Mama at the request of the Directorate of Lighthouses of Portugal. The Farol da Mama, located in Lisbon, is located at a height of 145 meters above sea level, being the light of the threading of the south bar of the Tagus River -together with the Farol da Gibalta and the Farol do Esteiro-, playing a essential function for maritime navigation in the port of Lisbon.
Almarin supplied the VRL91 threaded lights for the Mama Lighthouse marking. Its lenses register a luminous intensity of 400,000 candelas per unit, which allows ranges greater than 10 NM during the day and 24 NM at night. The equipment was designed in a modular way, which allows that in case of failure of one of the matrices, the others can continue working, minimizing the nominal range of the lighthouse. The installation included the VSU29 module that allows the GPS synchronization of the three lighthouses mentioned above. A web monitoring system was also installed to allow access, in real time, to relevant information on the operating status of the lantern.
