Siemens supports the expansion of Kumming Airport
Siemens Logistics has received an order to supply baggage handling and sorting technology for the Terminal 1 extension at Kunming Changshui International Airport in China. The order includes delivery of a highly developed early bag store (EBS) and the latest generation of the Vario Tray technology.
The latter consists of a tray-based conveyor line, a line stacker to stack unused trays, and 26 tilter plus units that can discharge bags to both sides.
In addition, Siemens will work closely with the general contractor Kunming Airport Logistics System Company to deliver the complete project management, engineering, design and control system.
Michael Reichle, CEO of Siemens Logistics, said: “We are proud to support the airport in expanding its capacities and further enhancing passenger convenience. With our EBS and tray technology, we will make a significant contribution to helping Kunming Airport cope with rising passenger numbers and increase its efficiency and competitiveness.”
After Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai, Kunming is the country’s fourth gateway hub airport, and the biggest in southwestern China. (mw)
