Turning requirements into solutions
Vanderlande proposed an integrated solution comprising hardware, software and life-cycle services, completed in two phases. T2 also includes an extension to Terminal 1 (T1), which now connects both terminals.
To ensure that Oslo benefitted from a ‘pull’ system, Vanderlande installed BAGSTORE, with 1,500 storage locations. HELIXORTER tilt-tray sorters and TUBTRAX were also introduced. In addition, Oslo Airport utilises a dedicated out-of-gauge system.
VIBES software facilitates seamless planning, execution, monitoring and analysis. Alongside the hardware and software, Oslo Airport requested a three-year O&M contract from Vanderlande.
Future-proof, flexible and adaptable
The solution has delivered a number of benefits to Oslo. Phase 1 of the T2 project has increased capacity from 21 to 28 million passengers and will rise to over 35 million a year. One of the key advantages is the in-built redundancy of the new system.
Oslo will also have access to a future-proof, flexible and adaptable solution that gives its passengers a world-class experience. Offering predictable handling of baggage at the lowest total cost, it provides the flexibility to expand and modify the design.
A true partnership
The T2 project has continued Vanderlande’s long-standing partnership with Oslo Airport. “For me, Vanderlande is absolutely a reliable partner,” says Oslo Airport’s Terminal Operations Director Thorgeir Landevaag. “This can be seen in the way they satisfy our needs, offering solutions to meet our challenges.”
T2 project enhances Oslo Airport’s position
Oslo Airport is the second busiest airport in the Nordic region and aspiring to be among the top ten in Europe. However, due to anticipated growth, it had to consider its strategy surrounding future expansion. This was to help it accommodate 28 million passengers annually (potentially 35 million), culminating with the Terminal 2 (T2) development.
