Stansted Airport Baggage System Upgrade

Stansted Airport Baggage System Upgrade

SPIE UK secured a contract for the baggage system upgrade works at Stansted Airport, the fourth-busiest airport in the UK, as part of the airport’s transformation works.

Appointed by Principal Contractor Beumer Group, SPIE is responsible for the M&E design and build, carrying out the removal and diversion of existing services within the baggage hall to enable the new system to be installed. The works include diversions of CHW, LTHW and domestic services pipework, electrical services, ductwork modifications and the provision of new containment, power, lighting and LV mains distribution to accommodate the new system.

The upgrade of the baggage handling system is set to include the new ECAC 3 compliant Explosive Detection System (EDS) machines for Hold Baggage Screening (HBS) and will also integrate the latest BEUMER autover® independent carrier system (ICS) known for its one-bag-per-carrier/tote efficient design that increases traceability and security at every stage of the handling process.

The award of both these contracts was primarily based on SPIE’s understanding and experience of how the systems operate in the airport and therefore, awareness of the sensitivities involved with such schemes – services cannot be suspended and must be delicately managed, in order to avoid risk to essential operations.

As part of the wider Stansted framework, SPIE will continue to have further opportunity to undertake works in the years to come – delivering bespoke solutions to achieve great results.
