Siemens to Provide Dublin’s New Baggage Screening System

Siemens Logistics will provide a new hold baggage screening system at Ireland’s Dublin Airport, Terminal 2. The contract with Dublin Airport Authority includes replacing the existing system and installing an additional line to further increase capacity. It is intended that the work will be completed without causing any restrictions to the normal flight plan or to passenger operations.

Siemens supplied and installed the current baggage handling system at Terminal 2 in 2010, which consists of 6 km of conveyor and an automated sorting system.  The implementation of new baggage screening units is based on increased international safety regulations: All baggage inspection systems at European airports must be equipped with explosives detection systems based on Standard 3 Hold Baggage Screening Security Regulatory Requirements.

Dublin Airport is one of only two European airports that offer automatic U.S. customs preclearance. Once passengers have successfully completed the security control process, checking their baggage to their destination in the U.S. requires no further formalities. On arriving in the U.S., they are treated as domestic passengers.

In addition to Dublin Airport, Terminal 2, Siemens Logistics is also implementing new hold baggage screening systems at other airports, including Munich, Terminal 2 and Palma de Mallorca.
