- • Greenfield project to be equipped with Siemens baggage handling system
• High-performing VarioTray technology and BagIQ software for excellent passenger experience
• Terminal 1 to initially handle 12 million passengers per year
Siemens Logistics has been awarded a contract to deliver the baggage handling system (BHS) for the new Noida International Airport (NIA), which will be constructed near Delhi, India. The scope of the contract is the design, supply, installation, commissioning, and maintenance of the BHS for the new Terminal 1.
The airport project will be implemented in four phases, starting with the building of the first terminal, which will initially handle 12 million passengers per year and is expandable to 30 million passengers. Siemens Logistics will supply its high-performance VarioTray conveyor technology to transport baggage quickly and reliably. The VarioTray system is modular and can be easily expanded in the future. For intelligent baggage process control throughout the entire BHS, Siemens Logistics will also install its proven High Level Control software BagIQ. It employs the latest software architecture to manage the routing of all bags and coordinating data in the airport ecosystem, among others.
“We are very delighted that Noida International Airport has chosen us for this exciting new airport project in India”, said Michael Schneider, Executive Vice President at Siemens Logistics. “The deployment of our latest VarioTray and software technologies will significantly contribute to enhanced passenger experience at NIA – whilst the operator can rely on operational efficiency and future-proof expandability.”
“We’re looking forward to our collaboration with Siemens Logistics," explained Christoph Schnellmann, Chief Executive Officer, Noida International Airport. "Noida International Airport will be India’s newest, greenest and most digital airport, providing a quick, easy and seamless experience for passengers and cost-efficient operations for airlines. We decided to rely on the Siemens team, who presented us the best value proposition with the most powerful and reliable baggage handling technologies. Besides that, Siemens has a strong local presence with a fully committed team.”
NIA will enhance the connectivity to and from the National Capital Region of Delhi, Noida and the Western Uttar Pradesh. Terminal 1 will be built in two stages. The design of the airport will focus on seamless and fast transfer processes for domestic-to-domestic passengers as well as for domestic-to-international transfers.
Siemens Logistics has already implemented its VarioTray technology in major hubs worldwide, among others Dubai Airports (UAE), Guangzhou and Beijing (China), Incheon (South Korea), Bangkok (Thailand), Madrid (Spain), Paris (France), etc. In India, the company has a long-standing proven track record of delivering projects successfully. The local professional team operates and maintains the BHS in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Bangalore – the four busiest Indian airports. Every second bag at an Indian airport is being handled by a BHS that is operated and maintained by Siemens Logistics.
