KUALA LUMPUR: T7 Global Bhd’s subsidiary, T7 Kemuncak Sdn Bhd, being part of Siemens T7 Consortium has secured a contract to upgrade the baggage handling system (BHS) at Terminal 1 KL International Airport.
In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the energy solutions provider said the contract from Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd involved the design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of a state-of-the-art BHS.
The new BHS will feature the efficient Siemens Logistics VarioBelt, belt conveyor. With VarioStore, Terminal 1 is receiving a modern early bag store (EBS) that will give the airport a storage capacity of 2,500 bag positions, which is higher than the current storage capacity.
