Siemens Industry has finished contract work on an automated baggage handling system intended to help scan more than 40,000 bags per day at Miami International Airport.

Ninety-one percent of the $220 million system went online in March 2012 and the company will work with local partners to complete the final coordination stages of the project, Siemens said Tuesday.

Remaining stages include three more explosive detection systems, three baggage carousels, one ticket counter and updates to the north terminal’s federal inspection service facility and recheck area.

“Siemens, MDAD, and its local partners will continue to collaborate on the remaining portions of the system as it is brought online to complement the overall project,” said Terry Heath, president of Siemens’ mobility and logistics division within the infrastructure and cities sector.

Portions of the remaining project scope will go live in the next couple of months and final cut-in is scheduled near the end of the year, Siemens said.

The system intends to utilize more than 14 miles of conveyor transportation and screening luggage from 152 ticket counters to more than 50 gates.
