In 2007 the Pan Peninsula topped out and was then one of the first tall residential developments to be built in the Docklands, London E14.

Towering at 155m this luxury living space and close proximity to London City Airport and nearby helicopter movements was captured for CAA mandated aviation safeguard lighting.

Medium Intensity lighting was fitted to the tallest East Tower. CEL Aviation Lights are LED based offering long lifetime and reliability. Both red aviation lights are controlled and monitored by CEL-CSW-48-F lighthead controllers and linked in the BMS – building management system for remote monitoring.

To date no failures reported in +15 years far exceeding the minimum recommended lifetime from the LED manufacturers.

CEL aviation lighting specialists were recommended to offer advisory, design and supply of fully compliant products to achieve the required aviation airspace protection.
