The installation, located in a building adjacent to “Terminal 1″, formerly used as a Freight Terminal, constitutes the new automated baggage security and sorting system used for 100% of all departing and transfer hold baggage from the “Eastern Area” of the Fiumicino Terminal System; it is sized according to the estimated future passenger traffic volumes envisaged by the airport development plan for 2027.
The project includes, other than the plant engineering and special installations, the construction of all the civil works for the adaptation of the existing building and the connection with the check-in system of the current Terminal 1, as well as the planned expansion of the terminal.
The complex comprises the following:

  • HBS System  (Hold Baggage Screening) for the security check of 100% of departing  baggage, with a screening capacity of 152 baggage items/minute, consisting of 13 EDS high-resolution devices  (Explosive Detection System) ‘’standard 3’’, operating on three control levels;
  • BHS System (Baggage Handling System) for the storage and automatic sorting to departure flights of ”originating” and transfer hold baggage, consisting of:
    • 3 independent sorting lines using cross belt  technology and ring configuration, with a sorting capacity of 100 baggage units/minute each;
    • luggage exchange lines for back up between the 3 sorting lines;
    • 6 manual coding stations;
    • 9 bays for the placement of transfer hold baggage;
    • 13 + 48 bays for load baggage.
