About this Project
- Location: Mexico City, Mexico
- Awarded: August 2020
ALSTEF GROUP contractor, Beumer Group supplied four Tilt-tray sorters
The solution is controlled by Alstef Group’s proprietary BHS control suite BAGWARE, including BAGSORT – Sortation, Allocation, Control (SAC) solution, BAGANALYTICS – Business Process Intelligence, and BAGVIEW, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) software.
The combined approach of the two companies has resulted in a world-class product that will be officially launched at the 2022 Passenger Terminal Expo in Paris from June 15-17.
The contract includes operations and maintenance of the BHS, and Alstef Group has now established a local office to support the airport and the broader Mexican market. The company is presently working at four other Mexican airports operated by Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) delivering in-bound reclaim solutions.
In addition, BAGXPERT, Alstef Group’s self-learning, adaptive predictive maintenance solution, will enable the airport and its operations and maintenance team to anticipate failures, identify risks, and reorganize maintenance activity in real-time to safeguard ongoing operations.
The new airport located 43 km from the city centre, can facilitate the processing of up to 22 million passengers per annum and will begin to relieve congestion from Mexico City’s – Benito Juárez International Airport, which is currently Latin America’s busiest airport. “Latin America remains a key market for the Alstef Group and we are committed to offering our customers local, dedicated, expert sales and support staff to assist with future works in the region,” states Philippe.
