Crisplant, a member of the Beumer Group, has been awarded a contract to supply a baggage handling system for Singapore Changi Airport, Terminal 4 (T4).
The T4 check-in area features automated self-service bag-drop and check-in kiosks, as well as conventional check-in aisles. Highly redundant CrisBelt transport lines, together with a hold baggage screening system, will ensure safe and efficient operation. All subsequent sortation is made using the latest-generation CrisBag system to ensure the highest level of availability, the shortest transport times and 100% track and trace capability. The CrisBag system includes an early baggage store so that passengers who arrive early in the terminal can immediately check in their bags and proceed through to the terminal's airside areas.
The contract reinforces the long and successful partnership between airport operator Changi Airport Group and Crisplant, which has supported baggage handling at Changi since the handover of Terminal 2's tilt-tray sorter-based baggage handling system in 2002. This was followed by a contract for Terminal 3, where Crisplant's CrisBag serves a dual role as a baggage sorting system and as an extensive inter-terminal transfer baggage system connecting terminals 1, 2 and 3. This system also features a fully integrated early bag store with a capacity of up to 4,000 items of luggage while optimum system availability and performance is assured by on-site Crisplant personnel, who run the baggage control room for Terminals 2 and 3 in a 24/7 operation and maintenance programme.
Singapore Changi Airport broke ground on Terminal 4 in November 2013. The new terminal will feature many design and process innovations to improve passengers' travel experience as well as increase operational efficiency and manpower productivity for airlines and airport agencies. T4 expects to welcome its first passengers in 2017.
