Siemens Building Technologies has been selected by BAA to design the information and communications system for a new terminal at Heathrow Airport, it has been reported.
In a £3.6 million contract, Siemens will ensure that all organisations working at the Heathrow Eastern Terminal will be able to get passengers quickly and safely aboard their flight.
Peter Hawksworth, managing director of Siemens Security Systems, said: "The experience that Siemens has in similar size projects around the world reassured BAA that they have a safe pair of hands to deliver in these very important areas such as security, fire and information management."
Heathrow Airport’s planned Eastern Terminal will replace Terminal 2 and the Queen’s Building when it is opened in four years time.
A spokesperson for BAA said: "Siemens Security Systems stood out as the organisation with the ideas, resources and experience to provide the best systems available for the operational needs of the new terminal."
Around 20 million passengers are expected to use the new terminal when it is completed, according to reports.
