As India continues its growth on the global stage, the country’s aviation sector grows with it. In 2019 the development rights for a new airport in the Delhi region were awarded to Zurich Airport International and planning was initiated for its first phase consisting of one runway and a terminal that will have the capacity to accommodate twelve million passengers per year upon its planned opening in 2024.
As part of the winning terminal design, an innovative Baggage Handling System was designed capable of meeting several requirements, including:
To answer the needs NACO delivered an innovative BHS solution. Our experience in BHS projects across the globe, expertise in architectural design, and IT Airport Systems ensured an in-depth understanding of the airport’s needs and the ability to develop and implement solutions.
With a strong focus on minimizing the BHS footprint to ensure efficiency and sustainability for the airport, our team developed the solution to provide a final product that saved 25% of the usual square footage required for a BHS. Leveraging decades of design experience and in-depth systems knowledge we were able to optimize the space usage all while ensuring technical and operational efficiency.
This drive to meet the client’s needs extended throughout the project as we provided support and– incorporated their demands and requirements while using a modular approach that ensured the design had flexibility for the airport’s future growth and modernisation.
In any major development, various suppliers and contractors will be involved in creating and realising designs. In this, our team again went the extra mile to ensure that the design and specifications allowed for sufficient flexibility to accommodate the features of various Baggage Handling System suppliers– leaving room for them to implement their own system components in an optimal way.
