Pollite > News > A bespoke frangible alternative to non-compliant concrete structures for Sunny Beach

Bergas and Varna Airportsin Bulgaria, serve the popular holiday resort of Sunny Beach and have recentlyundergone an upgrade to its approach masts. Pollite worked together with Log Siberia to replace theirnon–compliant ground lighting concrete structures with the latest frangibleapproach masts.

Due to the unique terrain bespoke designs were needed for each mast. Our teamof expert designers developed the masts of up to 16m with mid-hinges formanufacture in our UK facility to the highest safety specifications and ICAOand FAA compliance.

The masts are maintenance and corrosion free and their temperature and weatherresistant coating means they can withstand the fluctuating temperatures inBulgaria, where temperatures range from -10 to 28⁰C.

Despite the complex project demands we were able to meet the project timescalesand dispatch the masts within 6 weeks so they could be installed during theairports off peak season.
