Isavia selects Alstef Group for Keflavik Airport baggage system upgrade
As part of a terminal expansion project, Iceland airport operator Isavia has selected Alstef Group to design, build, and integrate new arrivals and departure baggage handling systems at Keflavik Airport in Reykjavik.
The turn-key project includes an outbound system upgrade to replace the existing Standard 2 Hold Baggage Screening (HBS) system with new ECAC Standard 3 Explosive Detection System (EDS) machines, supplied by Smiths Detection. The solution proposed by Alstef Group provides improved conveyor connectivity and redundancy to the new EDS machines.
The arrivals system involves replacing three existing arrival carousels and infeed conveyors, adding two new inclined carousels, and a new oversize inbound line.
“We chose Alstef Group as a contractor for this project based on quality, price, and their technical compliance. We believe we can build a strong partnership with Alstef Group to make this complex project a success for us both.” stated Isavia Director of Assets and Infrastructure, Maren Lind Másdóttir.
“Alstef Group has integrated baggage handling systems at airports all over the world, but this is our first project in Iceland,” says Philippe Hamon, Head of Airport Sales. “We intend to deliver Isavia a top-quality, innovative system, on-time, and on-budget, and we look forward to establishing a long-term partnership.”
Alstef Group designs, integrates, and supports automated turnkey solutions for the airport and intralogistics markets. The group provides its customers with agile and innovative solutions to meet their present and future needs with its three business units: Alstef, BA Systèmes and Glidepath.
Across more than 10 countries and with installed systems on all five continents, Alstef Group has around 850 employees and generated revenue of €140 million in 2020.
