Tatartan poultry farm Ak Bars picks Petersime for new broiler hatchery
Poultry Farming Complex Ak Bars Ltd. has started the second and final phase of the construction of a brand new hatchery located in Lenino-Kokushkino village, Tatarstan. When completed, the hatchery will reach a setting capacity of 39 million eggs per year.
After an extensive comparison between potential suppliers, Ak Bars selected Petersime exclusive agent Hartmann Lebensmitteltechnik GmbH to deliver the equipment. The hatchery will use BioStreamer™ setters and hatchers, complete with Embryo-Response Incubation™ technologies. Petersime and Hartmann also supplied the automation and HVAC equipment.
Hartmann organized the delivery, installation, and commissioning of the equipment, as well as the staff training.
The project was launched in June 2013 and is part of Ak Bars' strategy to vertically integrate the poultry production chain. This will allow them to provide affordable, quality products in the Republic of Tatarstan.
Ak Bars, along with poultry plant Kazanskaya OJSC and Agrofirm Ak Bars-Pestretsy OJSC,. is part of the poultry farming unit of Ak Bars Holding company. The three plants account for nearly one third of the total poultry meat production of Tatarstan.
The total annual average broiler stock of the three poultry plants reaches about 2 million broilers.
