Pas Reform’s Smart hatchery technologies have been selected for an expansion project at Moy Park’s hatchery in Ashbourne, Derbyshire (UK).

The new installation incorporates SmartSetPro 6 setters, SmartHatchPro hatchers and a complete HVAC system, including new air handling units, water chillers and boilers.

SmartPro’s modular, single-stage design and the adoption of Pas Reform’s space-saving 162 setter tray allows incubation conditions to be fully optimized to specific profiles for each batch of eggs set. This maximizes chick uniformity, while at the same time enabling a large hatching capacity to be achieved in a small footprint.

Pas Reform’s innovative SmartCenterPro hatchery information software delivers monitoring, control and detailed data analysis at every level of hatchery operations. With batch-specific Track and Trace capabilities, the system also generates full incubation cycle reports automatically for every batch set.

Pas Reform’s sales director, Erwin Prinzen, says: “We are delighted to have been chosen once again for this important expansion project and look forward to supporting the company’s ambitions for future growth.”
