Russia’s Agrofirma Oktyabrskaya is extending its poultry operations for the third time with the construction of a single-stage hatchery. The hatchery will be located in the Republic of Mordovia, in Russia’s Lyambirskiy District.

When completed, the hatchery will produce 45 million eggs annually and will employ about 100 people.

Hatchery will be equipped with Pas Reform technology

The new hatchery include Pas Reform10 SmartSetPro 6 and 18 SmartSetPro 4 setters, all equipped with Adaptive Metabolic Feedback to actively manage the environment in the setters for uniform embryonic development.

The contract also includes Hatchery Automation Systems from Pas Reform, with a points-down precision egg setting line and Pas Reform’s innovative, SmartCount  system, that uses vision-technology to gently count, vaccinate and analyze the day-old chicks.

The hatchery’s owner, identified as Mr. Andin in a press release issued by Pas Reform, stated:  “Oktyabrskaya is among Russia’s top suppliers of high quality poultry meat and products. With such a commitment to quality, we were rigorous in choosing a partner who would not only provide reliability, sustainability and innovative technologies in our new hatchery - but one that would also support us at every stage of the project and its development.”

Wim Schaafsma, managing director of Pas Reform Russia, concludes: “Mr. Andin and his team are looking to the future with Smart technologies and it is a privilege to be working with them. We are proud to have been awarded this project and look forward to contributing to Oktyabrskaya’s future growth and success.”
