Beumer and Crisplant awarded baggage handling IT contract at Heathrow

Beumer Group UK and Crisplant have been awarded a business-critical baggage handling IT project for Heathrow Airport’s flagship Eastern Campus Development Programme. This new terminal will have an initial capacity of 20 million passengers in the first phase, with options to support further expansion of the terminal in the future.

The baggage IT contract, which is an integral element of the Heathrow Eastern Campus Development Programme, will include an upgrade of the high level controls for the baggage handling systems in Terminal 2 and Terminal 1 to create a single, integrated baggage facility. This will enable the Heathrow T1 baggage handling system to provide all screening, sortation, storage and transfer processes as an integral part of the new T2 end-to-end baggage process.

The project, which has been awarded to Beumer Group UK by Mace, includes a replacement core Sort Allocation Computer (SAC) to upgrade the existing SAC systems for T1, T4 and T2. The new SAC will include features such as baggage flow monitoring and easy transfer baggage monitoring to increase the efficiency of the baggage processing system.

“Extensive integrated testing using emulation will be an essential part of the Beumer and Crisplant design and installation process. This proven methodology will ensure that the live Heathrow operation is protected during the installation and commissioning phases. Our commitment is that this crucial business-critical system will operate efficiently from the point of hand-over on 30 August 2013,” explained Peter Gilks, director airports division, Beumer Group UK.
