Beumer Group, a supplier of airport baggage handling systems (BHS), has been awarded the contract to design, deliver, install and commission an upgrade to the international arrivals baggage reclaim carousels at Glasgow Airport in Scotland.
The existing carousels in the international arrivals baggage hall were based on obsolete, legacy equipment, which were no longer supported by the manufacturer. Beumer’s three new carousels will deliver higher reliability and throughput in addition to providing passengers with a faster reclaims process. The control software for Beumer’s carousels will be fully integrated into Glasgow Airport’s existing control systems.
Peter Gilks, managing director Airport Division, Beumer Group UK, said, “Beumer Group UK was awarded this prestigious project due to our proven ability to upgrade legacy BHS with minimal disruption to the daily operation of the airport.”
The contract forms part of Glasgow Airport’s strategic plan to create a modern, attractive airport and to support future growth in passenger numbers. Beumer Group is on track to have the new international arrivals baggage reclaim carousels fully operational by May 2016.
