Siemens Logistics has received an order to upgrade the baggage-handling system in Terminal 2 and its satellite building at Franz Josef Strauss Airport in Munich, Germany.
The contract was awarded by Terminal 2 Gesellschaft, a joint subsidiary of Munich Airport and Lufthansa, and involves the reconstruction and expansion of the screening system. Work will take place without interruptions to airport operations, and is scheduled to be completed by mid-2022.
This upgrade to the current safety and security regulations for baggage handling, which require explosives detection systems based on Standard 3 of the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC), calls for replacement of the x-ray equipment in the baggage-handling system.
Siemens is also implementing latest-generation screening units that provide high-resolution 3D imaging and enhanced scanning quality.
