Glidepath awarded new terminal system contract
Glidepath awarded new terminal baggage handling and security system contract
Scheduled for completion in
2020, international construction firm Aecon has awarded
Glidepath a multi-million US dollar baggage and security
systems contract for the new terminal at LF Wade
International Airport Bermuda.
Situated at the northern most point of the Bermuda Triangle, Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory with an economy mainly made up of off shore insurance/reinsurance and tourism industries. Glidepath completed a similar contract out in the Atlantic at Nassau, Bahamas in 2013.
Aecon, a Canadian leader in infrastructure construction has worked with Glidepath on previous projects. “Our longstanding reputation within the Canadian market as a leader in baggage handling systems integration provides experience and surety to our client that we can get the job done. Our products are in service in airports all over the world and our Project Management team are highly experienced and ready to get started” states General Manager – Sales, Hamish Smith. “The location of this project is certainly a bonus for those who will be on-site but I doubt they will have any time for sightseeing as the main priority is to satisfy our client beyond their expectations” says Smith. Smith adds that it is timely that Emirates Team New Zealand are competing so strongly for the Americas Cup right now in Bermuda.
baggage system will contain state-of-the-art “GlideSort”
high level control systems controlling two CT screening
lines and sophisticated sortation systems. The inbound
system comprises two reclaim carousels.
As the only airport serving Bermuda, the expansion will cater for future passenger growth whilst also incorporating best-in-class technologies.
