The first part of the new baggage handling system at Edmonton International Airport (EIA) has been completed.
Vanderlande Industries is responsible for the installation of the system, which has been implemented in the recently expanded 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.”
Edmonton Airport Authority has also opted for Vanderlande Industries’ GREENVEYOR technology, which reduces energy consumption by up to 40%.
The ongoing Expansion 2012 project involves the extension of the terminal building to the south and the addition of 13 aircraft gates. The final phase, the implementation of a central hall, will be completed by December 2012.
