Baggage handling contract for Muscat and Salalah in Oman awarded to Vanderlande


The Omani government has awarded the baggage handling contract for the new passenger terminals at both Muscat International and Salalah airports to Vanderlande Industries.

The contract with a value of approximately 50 million Euros is due to be completed on April 1, 2014.
Vanderlande was selected because its solution offered the best total cost of ownership based on its highly redundant systems which at the same time minimise space requirements and maximise energy efficiency.

Execution and operation of this project will be done from the Vanderlande office in Oman, ensuring the close presence of technical and maintenance & operations crews.

The high availability of the systems is ensured by building in the required levels of redundancy, on controls level as well as on mechanical level, combined with high quality products which are all based on proven technology. This will give the airports the possibility to further increase performance and better serve their passengers.

Energy efficiency is improved through the smart use of both software and hardware. The software will start the relevant group of motors only after inducting bags into the system. After a time interval, suitable to ensure that the last entered bag reaches the end of the conveyor(s), the timing device will stop the corresponding conveyors. On hardware level e.g. the latest state-of-the-art motors will be applied, designed for minimum energy consumption.
