Electric Skyline contracted by ESB will beam a beacon of light into the sky from the new Air Traffic Control tower at Dublin Airport at 9pm tonight (Saturday 11 April) in support of the #ShineYourLight/ #LonraighdoSholas campaign. Everyone is being encouraged to ‘shine a light’ tonight at 9pm in solidarity with all those impacted by and helping to fight Covid-19.

At 87.7m high, the IAA’s new visual control tower at Dublin Airport is the country’s tallest occupied building and, weather depending, the beacon of light is visible as far south as Wicklow, and in parts of Meath and Louth, as well as to the west and north of the airport.
Engineers from ESB/Electric Skyline worked in partnership with the IAA engineering team to design and develop the lighting solution, which will project a solid beam of light into the night sky. This partnership to deliver this beacon of hope for Ireland is a strong symbol of the resilience of the Irish people and the fact that the IAA and ESB continue to do all in our powers to assist the national effort against COVID-19.

Electric Skyline Commercial Director Bryan Fox, said that Electric Skyline is proud to work with ESB on this project and hopes the beacon of light will offer hope during these challenging times.
The beacon of light will be switched on at 9pm tonight (Saturday, April 11th) to coincide with the moment that people all over the country are being encouraged to shine a light to bring hope to people affected by Covid- 19. It will continue to shine from the control tower nightly at 9pm while the Covid-19 crisis continues and will act as a symbol of hope.

Electric Skyline is also working on a similar project with Galway City Council to shine a light over a four day period from Nimmo’s pier in the city.
