Smiths Detection, a leading threat-detection and security-technology company, will supply a full suite of passenger baggage screening equipment for Kuwait’s new International Airport Terminal 2, which is currently under construction.
The contract includes the supply and installation of 70 x Hi-SCAN 6040 CTiX computed tomography (CT) X-rays, which allow passengers to leave electronic devices and liquids in their baggage.
Terminal 2, which is intended to become an international transit hub, will have the ability to handle 25 million passengers annually.
Jerome de Chassey, Vice President APAC and Middle East said: “Following on from the successful award of the hold baggage screening equipment last year, we are proud to be continuing this relationship with Kuwait International Airport, providing them with best-in-class screening equipment for their new terminal. The solutions that they have selected are the most technically advanced and are being installed in some of the biggest airports across the globe.”
