Daifuku Airport Technologies, a provider of airport baggage handling systems (BHS), has been awarded an explosives detection system (EDS) retrofit contract for Montréal Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport in Quebec, Canada.
Daifuku will replace the existing international departure system with an individual carrier system (ICS) utilizing Daifuku’s baggage-tray system (BTS) technology to improve the tracking efficiencies and reduce in-system times.
The new solution will be installed over multiple phases, including the integration of Morpho’s CTX 9800 EDS; standard belt conveyors; and the BTS.
The system will also utilize the latest tray management software to ensure the maximum operating efficiency and future expansion.
Matt Walker, Daifuku’s account manager for the airport, said, “Daifuku is pleased to continue its long-term relationship with Aeroport de Montreal. Our vast experience and expertise in providing customers with innovative and flexible solutions were key factors in winning this project. Our BTS solution is one of the most flexible products on the market and facilitates easier integration with existing baggage facilities.”
