 Light Towers, Portable Light Plants

Light towers are mobile light sources often used at construction sites and mines. Typically, an array of powerful lamps is mounted on a telescopic mast anchored to a highway-capable chassis, which houses a diesel or gasoline engine that drives a generator for supplying electricity to the lamps. Some light towers provide a battery option for silent operation.
