Midfield Concourse at HKIA has become completely operational


Hong Kong, April 2016 - Lödige Asia has recently completed the design, supply and installation of the baggage handling system (BHS) at Hong Kong International Airport Midfield Concourse. Lödige Asia received the contract award for the baggage handling system in late 2012 and started the system installation in August 2014. The Midfield Concourse (MFC) of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) has started its operations in full capacity, supporting the airport's development programme, in March 2016. The new midfield concourse sits between two runways covering 410,000 square meters. The 5-storey building located west of T1 will increase passenger capacity by 10 million persons per annum.

Lödige designed and installed the standalone baggage handling system for transfer bag screening and handling through a system of automated conveyors. This design of the conveyor system has optimized functionality as a primary concern; it includes, two in-feed lanes, multiple screening machines, vertical sorters and diverters, and provides separate one-to-one screening for priority baggage. The system functioning through PLC hardware and software has an interface with existing airport systems, allowing the integration of the new concourse to function seamlessly.
