In order to cope with the rapidly rising number of air passengers and traffic, four new terminals and a fourth runway are to be built at DIAL by 2026. As a first step, the new Terminal 3 is due for completion by March 2010. It will have 78 Boarding Bridges for national and international passengers and is designed to handle 34 million passengers.
Siemens is supplying the baggage handling system for the new Terminal 3 at DIAL. In future, bags can be handed in at 168 check-in desks at the departures level of the terminal, which covers an area of 520,000 m2. For oversize luggage, there will be five desks available. A total of 28 X-ray stations will be integrated in the system so that all baggage can be subjected to a 100% security inspection.
The sorting system has been designed for a capacity of over 11,300 bags per hour and has a total length of almost 13 kilometers. For this purpose, Tilt-tray sorters as well as vertical sorters and high-speed diverters will be used. In addition, the system includes make-up carousels. At the arrivals level of the new terminal, 12 baggage claim systems will ensure problem-free distribution of baggage to travelers.
Commenting on the order, Dr. Armin Bruck, Managing Director, Siemens Ltd. said, “Siemens is proud to participate in the development of this world-class airport along with DIAL in the country’s capital city of New Delhi. The Baggage Handling system that we are providing at the International Airport is the biggest in India and is at par with the best in the world. As a global leader with a vast experience and proven expertise in the airport sector, this prestigious project provides us yet another opportunity to bring the best-in-class technology for the challenging Aviation sector in India”
