Building on the success of previous projects, Dutch hatchery technology company Pas Reform has been contracted to build a new GPS hatchery for Krasnayarugsky Broiler, a subsidiary of Prioskolje, the fastest growing broiler integration in Russia.
Mr. Genaddy Bobritskij, Prioskolje's general director, says Pas Reform was the clear choice for the supply of a turnkey hatchery project. The Dutch company, being hailed as the fastest growing hatchery company in the world, has exclusive Agreements for the supply of hatchery equipment into Prioskolje companies, having already built four turnkey broiler hatcheries for the Group, with a total capacity of around 150 million eggs per year.
The Krasnayarugsky GPS hatchery has an annual capacity of 12 million eggs and is expected to produce 3.5 million parents per year, with expansion plans doubling that number to seven million. Due to the phenomenal growth of Prioskolje, almost half of that expanded production capability will be dedicated to Krasnayarugsky's mother company.
A key feature of the new GPS hatchery is its unique ventilation system. "We wanted the best possible solution," explains Krasnayarugsky's first deputy director Mr. Tolstoi, "because the use of a pressure controlled system to direct flows between the cleanest room (highest pressure) and the dirtiest room (lowest pressure) in the hatchery, was insufficient for our needs.
"Pas Reform's project team came with the idea of building an air preparation room above the transfer room. So that only after the air meets all the correct temperature and humidity parameters, will it be brought into the incubation rooms."
As an additional safeguard, all air entering the Krasnayarugsky hatchery is filtered twice, to remove dirt and bacteria, then UV-disinfected in the air preparation room, before being brought to optimum quality for streaming into the incubation rooms.
Krasnayarugsky's aim was, says Mr Tolstoi, not just to build the most modern and sophisticated hatchery in Russia, but in the world! "We have the perfect opportunity with a project of this caliber," he says, "to do it right from the outset. Using the very latest technologies and know-how, we have future-proofed the hatchery, to set standards and assure our customers the absolute pinnacle of supply in the broiler sector for many, many years to come."
The Krasnayarugsky project was created in close cooperation with Grazvydas Grigaliunas (Managing Director of ISABALT), Gennady Syedin (General Manager of BALTISA) and Nicolas Neyra (Senior Technician Hubbard). ISABALT is the exclusive distributor of Hubbard PS into Russia and CIS countries.
