Siemens, Max Bögl Group and Keolis are to construct a new 5.6 km automated people mover (APM) for Frankfurt Airport, as a key component in the Terminal 3 (T3) construction programme.
Airport operator Fraport awarded the EUR300 million (USD373 million) contract after a competitive tender.
The APM is scheduled to enter service in 2023, to coincide with the start of T3 operations. Driverless shuttles will transport passengers from Terminals 1 and 2 to the new T3 at Frankfurt in about eight minutes, according to Fraport.
“The contract is a key strategic milestone in efficiently linking our future Terminal 3 with the existing Terminals 1 and 2 and the airport’s public transportation network, including the long-distance and regional train stations,” said Fraport executive board chairman Stefan Schulte.
