Contract for Bratislava Airport BHS awarded to Vanderlande Industries
Slovak main contractor ZIPP has awarded Vanderlande Industries the contract for delivery of a baggage handling system.
Slovak main contractor ZIPP (100% subsidiary of Strabag) has awarded Vanderlande Industries the contract for delivery of a baggage handling system including hold baggage screening equipment for the new Bratislava Airport Terminal (capital of Slovak Republic). The new terminal will enable Bratislava Airport to increase annual passenger flows from 2.2 million passengers in 2008 to 4 million passengers per year by 2012.
The Vanderlande Industries’ sales team started design preparations already in March 2008 in cooperation with the architect and Bratislava Airport. Throughout the sales phase, the sales team continuously concentrated on the complex structure of decision makers and consultants, in close cooperation with local partners. Despite strong competition, Vanderlande’s good prosposal resulted in the award of the project.
The BHS will consist (amongst others) of 36 check-ins divided over two check-in islands, 5 levels of redundant Hold Baggage Screening, two TRIPLANAR make up carousels and four TRIPLANAR arrival carousels including feeding lines. The controls equipment will include SCADA.
The delivery of the system will take place in two phases. In the first phase the departure section will be built and completed, scheduled to open in May 2010. In the second phase the arrival section will be completed, scheduled to open in March 2012.
