Energy-efficient automated BHS from Crisplant
26 September 2012
Crisplant highlighted the latest energy-efficient automated baggage handling technologies at the Inter Airport China, Beijing in September 2012. The Crisplant stand featured a section of the energy-efficient CrisBag® tote-based baggage transport system, as well as video of the state-of-the-art baggage handling system in operation at Helsinki Airport in Finland. The Helsinki system, which was designed, manufactured and installed by Crisplant, integrates a CrisBag® tote system with the high-speed LS-4000 tilt-tray sorter to achieve the industry’s lowest energy consumption, with a 75% reduction compared to conventional sorters. Klaus Schäfer, Crisplant Managing Director, said: “With offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong, a factory in Shanghai, and installations in a number of Chinese airports, most lately Shanghai Pudong and Guangzhou Baiyun Airport, the BEUMER Group and Crisplant have proven expertise as an integrator of major baggage handling systems within this region.” Crisplant’s expertise as an integrator of baggage handling systems for regional and hub airports has been demonstrated with the recent award of major contracts by Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia and Nanjing Lukou International Airport.
