SKOV to provide ventilation systems for Namib Poultry



Denmark-based SKOV has agreed to offer complete Combi-Tunnel ventilation systems to 53 poultry houses from Namib Poultry farm, in southern Namibia.


The order was landed in collaboration with Peninsula Poultry Appliances, SKOV's dealer in South Africa, and the company will also supply production control and farm management systems, besides ventilation systems.


The farm will have 53 houses, of which six will be for rearing stock, 12 for parent stock and 35 for broilers and once completed, it will have a capacity of 250,000 broilers a week.


SKOV said the farm will be equipped with its new DOL 539, a combined climate and production computer that features a touch screen for menu navigation as well as a LAN connection for PC communication.


The farm will work with FarmOnline v. 2, which contains a new production module that makes it very easy to follow and optimise poultry production.

The first part of the supply will be delivered in August and the entire farm is expected to be in operation at the beginning of 2012, SKOV said.
