Beumer Group has been selected by Bengaluru International Airport in India to supply its new second terminal with flexible and efficient baggage handling systems that support increased capacity.
The contract involves Beumer Group supplying an end-to-end baggage handling system capable of moving 4,500 items of baggage per hour. The system comprises an advanced and super-efficient, high-speed tilt-tray sorter, a kind used by many major international airports worldwide. Furthermore, the system features full redundancy, thereby eliminating any single point of failure, and is controlled by Beumer Group’s high-level controls.
Nitin Vyas, managing director of Beumer India said, “At Bengaluru International Airport, our focus has been on partnering with BIAL [the airport’s operator]to introduce a baggage handling system capable of moving large quantities of baggage faster, with better accuracy and high efficiently. We have therefore designed a system which combines a low capital outlay with the ability to establish new performance benchmarks.”
The baggage handling system will become operational as part of the first phase opening of the new terminal, which will receive its first passengers in the spring of 2021.
