Baggage Handling Systems at Airports

Company Vanderlande
Date 21.12.2010

Oslo Airport at Gardermoen needed an automated baggage handling system for its 21st century growth plans. Vanderlande Industries was chosen in 1994 because of its ability to build and integrate a high-speed, high-accuracy system with the latest technology for minimum total Life Cycle Costs.

The system handles departures, arrival and transfer baggage, both standard and oversize, and includes 100% Hold Baggage Screening.

  • The BAGTRAX DCV system allows common check-in, transport speeds up to 12 m/s and an integrated Early Baggage Storage with 450 positions
  • Oversize baggage is transported by belt conveyor lines and VERTISORTER
  • For arrivals, belt conveyors connect the piers with the reclaim carousels
  • The Baggage Execution System includes a Baggage Handling System Computer (BHSC) for high-level co-ordination and information support, and the BAGTRAX System Controller (BSC) to manage storage and sortation

Vanderlande Industries also provides daily Operations and Maintenance services. After installation in 1998 the baggage handling system has scored an availability of more than 99.5%. Day in, day out!
