Automation specialist Alstef has been contracted to install a new baggage-sorting system as part of the renovation and expansion of the connection between Terminals 2B and 2D at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, France.
Through the Terminal 2 project, French airport operator Groupe ADP hopes to increase passenger capacity and make the processing of Schengen and international flights more flexible.
The adapted solution proposed by Alstef includes 50 check-in counters, a discontinuous conveyor for processing oversize bags, three Standard 3 baggage screening machines, and a screening machine.
For departures, baggage sorting is undertaken by one high-speed carousel with pushers and two flat plate carousels. At arrivals, the sorting system includes five inclined carousels which are capable of processing oversized luggage.
Complete commissioning of the system is scheduled for the first quarter of 2020. An eight-year operational maintenance contract is also associated with the contract.
