BEUMER Group Awarded Project to Link the Baggage Handling Systems Between London Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 1 and Terminal 2: The Queen’s Terminal

BEUMER Group Awarded Project to Link the Baggage Handling Systems Between London Heathrow Airport's Terminal 1 and Terminal 2: The Queen's Terminal

BEUMER Group including Crisplant has been awarded the project to link the baggage handling system in London’s Heathrow Airport new Terminal 2: The Queen’s Terminal, with the existing system in Terminal 1.

Working through MACE, the project’s main contractors, BEUMER Group will design, install and commission the conveyor systems for the baggage handling system link. In addition, the BEUMER Group PLC application software and the current electrical controls infrastructure for the baggage handling system will be fully integrated.

The new system will link the baggage handling systems in Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 via the Heathrow T1 South Void Link system. The fully integrated system will enable Terminal 1 to process the departure and transfer baggage for passengers in Terminal 2. This will streamline the baggage handling process to minimise transfer times for passengers on connecting flights.

Crisplant’s Klaus Schäfer, Managing Director, comments; "Our proven ability to upgrade and integrate new baggage handling systems with minimal disruption will be a crucial factor in this project. BEUMER Group will specify every detail of the baggage handling system integration to ensure that there will be no disruption for passengers, airlines or the normal operation of the airport."

This key project will enhance the capabilities of the baggage handling system in Terminal 1 to give Heathrow Airport the infrastructure and the facilities they need to ensure that passengers can expect a smooth departure from both terminals.

The new Terminal 2 is set to open in 2014 and is the latest phase of a major transformation of London Heathrow, which is the UK’s busiest airport. Currently under construction, the new Terminal 2 will have the capacity to handle an estimated 20 million passengers per year.

ECAC standards were made mandatory for all airports in 2007, and in September 2014 European airport security underwent a major change.
