Vanderlande to install eight SCANNOJET at Bergen Airport Flesland
16 March 2017
Vanderlande has been awarded the contract to install eight SCANNOJET automated passenger checkpoints at Bergen Airport Flesland in Norway, the second largest of the 46 airports in the country owned and operated by Avinor. Competition for the contract was intense with seven unique bids tendered. Vanderlande was ultimately selected for the project owing to the efficient design and delivery method of the SCANNOJET system. The company achieved the highest overall score with regard to key criteria, such as total cost of ownership, performance and project planning. Vanderlande said that it was a “significant milestone in a competitive market” that has enjoyed rapid growth in recent times. Alongside the eight SCANNOJET units, Bergen Airport has requested Passenger Checkpoint (PCP) furniture and that the new systems are fully prepared for and compatible with remote screening functionality. SCANNOJET works by guaranteeing a steady stream of trays to the initial point on the conveyor. This new technology has been engineered to improve both security and the passenger experience at an airport’s most sensitive area.
