Glidepath has recently secured a contract with Saskatoon Airport, Canada, to upgrade their baggage handling system within a brown field environment on the back of the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) recapitalisation nationwide initiative. Glidepath’s tender submission was considered exemplarily by the acting consultant - IBI Group.
The contract works involves complex equipment including the provision for the installation of automatic centering technology feeding two Morpho screening machines. The implementation is to be conducted in a phased approach while maintaining full airport operations.
Due to the complexity of incorporating the changes into a fully operational airport, Glidepath simulated a model of the proposed system which was used to validate the performance of the system based on certain assumptions, parameters and allowing for a carefully considered project execution.
Along with a new passenger check-in area, Glidepath will provide an array of proprietary baggage handling product out of their facility in Auckland, New Zealand. Nick Skomorowski, the assigned Senior Project Manager stated that a project of this complexity requires careful planning, resources and ingenuity.
Having designed and implemented a number of similar systems across Canada, Glidepath have the knowledge, expertise and personnel to deliver this project seamlessly, on time and on budget.
