Vanderlande Industries Provides Energy-Efficient Baggage Handling System for Edmonton International Airport
Vanderlande Industries completed the first part of the baggage handling system for Edmonton International Airport (EIA) in Alberta, Canada. The completion of this first phase allowed for a successful opening of the doors to the new US Departures expansion on February 11, 2012.
Passengers flying to the US can now enjoy a speedier and easier experience in the new terminal, which is four times the size of the previous US departures area.
Henk de Groot, VP of operations at Vanderlande Industries said: "Vanderlande Industries is proud that Edmonton International Airport chose to use our BAXORTER technology which provides a reliable baggage tracking system meeting the needs of both the airport and CATSA. It also supports Edmonton International Airport’s vision of being a world-class airport. The Edmonton Airport Authority also embraced sustainability as a core value and chose Vanderlande Industries’ GREENVEYOR, a conveyor with many operational environmental benefits."
