Alstef has commissioned the baggage-handling system for the new terminal at Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport’ in France, and launched the associated maintenance contract.
Phase 1 of the project includes 33 check-ins and four arrival carousels in the public areas. Within the restricted area is the redundant sorting system, which is made of three carousels linked to a Standard 3 baggage screening system. It was essential that the layout of the installation followed the circular architectural line of the new terminal.
The system was designed to achieve the lowest possible operating costs by reducing energy consumption, and the conveyors are fitted with high-efficiency geared motors with a variable speed drive called IE4 rated motors.
The baggage system is driven by Alstef’s management software BAGWare, which work with supervision software BAGWare View. A dedicated control room regroups all of the supervision applications of the terminal.
The maintenance of the system is carried out by a team of Alstef engineers and technicians on-site, who are also responsible for the maintenance of the baggage sorting systems in the other terminals of the airport.
Phase 2 involves the addition of check-ins and arrival carousels, and the installation of a cross belt automatic sorter.
