Bergas and Varna Airports in Bulgaria, serve the popular holiday resort of Sunny Beach and have recently undergone an upgrade to its approach masts. Pollite worked together with Log Siberia to replace their non–compliant ground lighting concrete structures with the latest frangible approach masts.

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

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

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