A design and construction contract to renovate the hold baggage-screening system (HBS) at Terminal 2D at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport has been awarded to Alstef Group.
The contract is part of a global initiative to integrate Standard 2 Explosive Detection Systems (EDS) control machines into the security checkpoint to meet the latest safety standards. Due to run over 34 months, the project will have two phases, the first of which is due to be completed in May 2022.
Alstef’s solution was favored by the operator as it incorporated redundant capacity and ease of operation and maintenance, and was deemed the best solution to meet the airport’s economic and CSR goals.
The scope of the works will encompass 51 check-in counters, an automated outbound sortation system, two make-up carousels and power distribution, alongside control and supervision software that meets the requirements of the LPM (military programming law).
