Siemens wins new service contract at Dubai International airport

The company will provide operation and maintenance services for baggage and material handling systems

German company Siemens announced that its subsidiary has won a services contract from Dubai Airports.

Siemens Postal, Parcel and Airport Logistics will provide operation and maintenance services for baggage and material handling systems at Dubai International airport, a statement said.

The contract covers Terminal 1, 2 and 3 and a recently established material handling system close to the Dubai Flower Centre.

The agreement covers a period of several years with the option for a further extension, the statement said. The long-term contract will help process re-engineering, energy savings as well as cost and time efficiency, the company added.

No details were disclosed about the value of the contract.

“Siemens and Dubai Airports count on a long business relationship as Siemens constructed and expanded the baggage and cargo handling systems across the entire airport,” said chief executive of Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics Michael Reichle.

Under the deal, the two companies have jointly established key performance indicators. This will cover all facets of operational support, trouble-shooting, permanent improvement and preventive and predictive maintenance, the statement said.

Siemens also has a dedicated local team on site and its personnel will form an operations and asset care team along with airport staff.

Dubai International currently ranks as the world’s busiest for international passenger traffic after overtaking London’s Heathrow last year. The airport serves more than 100 passenger and cargo airlines flying to over 280 destinations across six continents.

Passenger numbers are projected to reach more 79 million by the end of 2015 and over 100 million by 2020.
