THE UKRAINIAN state authorities have awarded a major contract to baggage handling systems (BHS) company Logan Teleflex and its local agent and partner Gate Technologies for an integrated departures check-in set-up with 100% hold baggage screening. The new system is part of the continuous development of the busy Boryspil International Airport – the main international airport within the Ukraine.
The new departure system will comprise Logan Teleflex’s baggage handling technology with X-ray screening machines supplied by Gate Technologies. It has been designed to provide a throughput of 2,400 bags per hour and will be delivered by the end of 2010.
The BHS is based around a straight central line with check-in desks left and right that ultimately feed to the make-up carousels. The technology provided includes 30 two-stage, in-gauge check-in desks; two baggage transportation system; two Level 1 / 2 100% hold baggage screening systems; a Level 3 screening line; two horizontal baggage make-up carousels and an out-of-gauge screening system with a dedicated check-in and weigh scale. The system complies with international security standards and regulations. The project entails Logan Teleflex and Gate dismantling and moving the existing departure lines without disrupting the normal day-to-day running of the departure terminal.
The project team will ensure that temporary check-in facilities will provide efficient support for the airlines and their customers while the new system is built.
“This is an exciting project for the Logan Teleflex / Gate Technologies team. We have an excellent relationship with Boryspil International Airport and the Ukraine authorities having supplied a system to them in 2002. This project will provide a future-proof integrated system that will provide highly efficient and secure baggage handling to cope with Boryspil’s increasing number of passengers.” said Ronnie Romano, Business Development Manager for Logan Teleflex UK Ltd.
