Vanderlande to install baggage handling IT system at London Stansted

Vanderlande has been awarded a long-term contract to provide strategic IT development and support services at London Stansted Airport by its operator Manchester Airport Group (MAG).

Vanderlande will design, build and implement a new control system, and manage the accompanying life-cycle support package until at least 2020. The new system will be operational by the fourth quarter of 2015 and will incorporate Vanderlande’s baggage sortation allocation computer (SAC) and intelligent supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software. The system will monitor and report on the overall performance of the airport’s baggage handling process.

The integrated SAC and SCADA package was selected by MAG as the strongest technical solution for the specific requirements at Stansted Airport. It will include three modules from Vanderlande’s baggage execution software system VIBES – VIBES.SAC, VIBES.SCADA and VIBES.BPI (business process intelligence).

Vanderlande’s baggage execution software has been implemented at more than 50 airports worldwide and does not require any modifications to be made to the existing baggage handling system. In addition, Vanderlande will provide a minimum five-year 24/7 baggage IT-support service for the airport.

Anthea Kubiczyn, IT project manager, London Stansted, said, “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Vanderlande, which has a strong technical and commercial proposition to meet our current and future needs. Stansted is the third largest airport in London and currently the fastest growing major airport in the UK, serving more than 20 million passengers and over 200,000 tons of cargo a year, and we look forward to working with Vanderlande to support our future operational needs.”

Filipe Ferreira, head of IT and systems, Vanderlande UK, said, “We are very excited to be forging this long-term partnership with MAG. It is an opportunity for us to prove once more that Vanderlande provides an exceptionally high level of service and a solution to manage London Stansted’s baggage handling system at an elevated level of efficiency and transparency.
