Alstef will be responsible for replacing the current BHS with a new outbound sortation system, which will include 12 self-serve bag drops, 22 check-in locations and two in-line Standard 3 CT x-ray machines.

The outbound system will also involve a manual encode lane and automatic sortation to three makeup carousels controlled by Alstef’s BAGSORT Lite technology.

Three new horizontal carousels with feed lines will make up the new inbound system.

PJIA operating company project director Mirto Breell said: “The BHS installation is one of the critical milestones for this high-profile and multifaceted project.

“With the commencement of the main reconstruction works in Q4 2021, we are looking forward to the new and improved BHS and a healthy, long-term working relationship with Glidepath/Alstef Group.”

The work is being carried out under the World Bank-managed national recovery and resilience programme, which intends to reconstruct and repair the terminal after the airport was damaged by Hurricane Irma in 2017.

Alstef airport sales director Philippe Hamon said: “The evaluation criteria for this project were heavily weighted on the proponent’s ability to meet the technical specification requirements and a proven history of comparable BHS project deliveries.

“Only the offers that met the performance and compliance criteria progressed to the economic assessment and this project award proves Alstef Group’s ability to offer technically compliant, economical solutions backed up by a well-established track record.”

The BHS project will be implemented in various phases and is expected to be completed by June 2023.

Last December, Alstef Group secured a contract to upgrade the BHS at Dzaoudzi–Pamandzi International Airport on Pamanzi Island in Mayotte.
