THE Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited, (SAHCOL) has acquired a state of the art equipment aimed at enhancing efficiency in its service delivery.The Rapiscan 632DV X-ray system machine with dual view is an advanced small and large parcel screening system designed for pallet and break bulk cargo screening.
SAHCOL’s acquisition of the equipment falls in line with the directives from the United States that ground handling companies should migrate from the single view screening machine for cargo items to dual view due to the heightened wave of terrorism across the world.
According to SAHCOL, “the new equipment comes with a 1,500 mm (59.1 inches) wide by 1,650mm (65.0 inches) high tunnel opening and uses innovative dual–view technology to generate a horizontal and vertical view of the object under inspection with a standardised platform that makes it easy to install and maintain.
“The machine also comes with features such as dual energy detection, a streamlined, ergonomic design and Rapiscan’s feature–rich 0S600 system software.”
Rapiscan 632DV X-ray system machine with Windows software has 24 high capacity monitors, dual view lockable console kit, 4.0m umbilical cable, 115V North America /Japan three-pin voltage kit, as well as 230V British three-pin voltage kit.
Speaking on the development, the Managing Director of SAHCOL, Olu Owolabi, said the introduction of the new equipment will ensure the cargo section of SAHCOL perform optimally as the organisation strives to meet international standard in its cargo, parcel and baggage inspection.
Owolabi also said that SAHCOL would stop at nothing to ensure customer satisfaction, pointing out that steps have been taken to reposition SAHCOL since its takeover by the Sifax Group in 2009.
He added that Secure Brainwaves Technologies (Nig) Ltd would commence training workshop for staff members after the installation of the machine.
The machine, manufactured by Rapiscan Systems was delivered by X-Ray House Salfords, United Kingdom.Share
