The Aruba Airport Authority has awarded BEUMER a USD33 million contract to install and maintain a tote-based baggage-handling system (BHS) at Queen Beatrix International Airport as part of its Gateway 2030 upgrade and expansion programme.
Terminal designer NACO and programme management consultant Satterfield & Pontikes will collaborate with BEUMER on final design work. Installation is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2020, with completion planned by mid-2021 to coincide with the opening of Gateway 2030 Phase I.
Its high-speed BHS will include CrisBag totes, and it will be integrated with inline screening to comply with US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations. BEUMER has already provided CrisBag as its Individual Carrier System (ICS) solution for a baggage-handling upgrade in San Francisco International Airport, but the Aruba project is its first in the Caribbean.
