Electronic failures of e-passport gates at Stansted Airport are addressed by officers at the port, who have access to twenty four hour technical support. At Stansted, each bank of 5 e-Passport gates is on a different power circuit in order to mitigate the risk of power failure affecting all 15 gates at once.
