Abu Dhabi International Airport has decided for desert-capable curves from Transnorm for the expansion of the baggage handling systems in the customs and air safety check segment.

For this reason airports with desert climate and onshore winds, confirm the trend to invest in special-equipped curves. These curves work in the long term on highest availability despite of salted sea air and fine sand.

Dubai Airport, which is only 100km far away, is already using several hundreds of desert curves from Transnorm successfully after curves of other suppliers had to be partially replaced. Abu Dhabi International Airport will obtain until 2012 a new centre complex, whereby the passenger and luggage capacity will be increased to 20 million passengers per year.

Transnorm is one of the leading international manufacturers of high performance modules for unit load, collector and box conveying systems, as well as parcel- and luggage conveying systems. Moreover in using those products, conveyer system solutions could be realised for a multiplicity of end users in different branches. In the segment of curve belt conveyors Transnorm is global market leader with a market share of more than 50%.

Besides the head quarter in Harsum (Germany) Transnorm has further manufacturing plants in the USA and Malaysia. This enables the company a reliable customer liaison and support for globally active system manufacturers, such as distribution centres, airports or parcel/mail distribution centres.
