Dutch term or phrase: bebakeningsbakken
"- leveren en plaatsen van bebakeningsbakken, verbindingsbuizen en het graven van sleuven tussen deze bakken"
"- het leveren en het installeren van kabelingangen en kabeldoorgangen in de bebakeningsbakken"
"- het plaatsen van ingebouwde bakens (axiaal, stopbar, lateraal)"

This is a term from a description of the renovation works on an airport runway. I guess this refers to the runway lighting/beaconing system, should this be translated as a "beacon/beaconing tray", "beacon mount/case"..?. Could someone help me with a translation for this term?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
