Egis has been contracted by Riyadh Airports Company to provide design and project management consultancy services to replace Hold Baggage Screening (HBS) machines in Terminal 5 (T5) at King Khalid International Airport, Saudi Arabia.
The French engineering firm will provide project and cost management services to remove the existing HBS machines serving four check-in islands in T5, and the installation, hook-up and commissioning of detection equipment.
Jacques Khoriaty, aviation Middle East director of Egis, said, “Through this new contract, Riyadh Airports Company is restating confidence in our extended capabilities on both airside and terminal projects and full range expertise from consultancy, design, procurement support, and project and construction management. We are delighted to provide continued guidance and support to our client with a specific focus on safety and operational efficiency. T5 will remain operational during HBS machines replacement and our consultants and our engineers will closely coordinate with all contractors to make sure operations run smoothly until final commissioning.”
Egis has been supporting the ongoing transformation program at Riyadh Airport through major airside upgrades of taxiways and apron systems with the replacement of passenger boarding bridges, 400Hz power units and pre-conditioned air.
