CTU recently celebrated the first hatch of parent stock and broiler chicks from its new GPS and broiler hatcheries in Pandelang, Banten – supporting customer demand in Banten and parts of Sumatra.
Both hatcheries make full use of Royal Pas Reform’s single-source capabilities. The GPS hatchery project includes SmartSetPro™ setters and SmartHatchPro™ hatchers and a SmartHeat™ unit – for short periods of heat treatment during egg storage.
Each setter is equipped with Royal Pas Reform’s Adaptive Metabolic Feedback (AMF™), which ensures that the incubation environment meets the metabolic needs of each developing embryo. The hatchers are equipped with SmartWatch™, which controls humidity and CO2 levels in the hatcher to optimize the hatch window for every cycle.
The installation also includes hatchery automation and climate control. Royal Pas Reform’s SmartCenterPro™ hatchery management software provides monitoring, control and detailed data analysis at every stage of hatchery operation. With batch-specific track-and-trace capabilities, the system also generates full incubation cycle reports for every batch set.
Pas Reform Academy will provide a hatchery management training programme, as well as on-going monitoring and advice – to tailor the hatchery’s incubation programmes for peak performance.
Bas Kanters, Royal Pas Reform’s Sales Director Asia, says: “We have worked closely with CTU throughout the development process. From sales and commissioning, hatchery planning, project management and installation, to after sales, technical back-up and training services. CTU is an ambitious company and we are proud to be working with it to deliver on its expansion strategy.”
