    IDOM has worked on the design and site supervision for the automated baggage handling systems (BHS) for the airport of Fuerteventura. Cutting-edge technology (CrisBag) has been used, to manage the movement and tracking of individual pieces of luggage in tubs using radio frequency identification technology (RFID).

    • Monitoring the performance of the electromechanical elements of the system using SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition technology)
    • Assigning the destination to the baggage using a sort allocation computer (SAC) system
    • The routing of baggage using a CrisBag System Controler (CSC)

    • Average capacity: 5,760 bags/hour
    • Maximum capacity: 7,500 bags/hour
    • Tracking: 1,650 tubs
    • Total length : 7 km
