The installation will comprise arrivals carousels  with belt conveyors and steelwork for access and maintenance; automatic tag readers (ATR); security shutters; field equipment and cabling; local motor control panels and emergency stop units. The BEUMER Group says it will also manage and support specialist IT suppliers for the high-level baggage SCADA and SAC systems.
