Brasil: Agro Danieli expands with Pas Reform

On 5 November in Tapejara, RS Brazil, Agro Danieli signed a contract with Pas Reform do Brasil, for the supply of a complete Smart incubation system that will expand the company's production of day-old chicks at their Ibiaça hatchery site.

The new Smart system will comprise 18 SmartSet™ 77 setters and 12 SmartHatch™ hatchers, as well as a complete HVAC ventilation system throughout all areas of the hatchery’s operation. Plans also accommodate a doubling of capacity at Ibiaça, with a further 18 setters and 12 hatchers in the future.

“With a very high level technical team in place, Agro Danieli’s decision to install Smart single stage incubation technologies came after a thorough evaluation of the options available, both here in Brasil and abroad,” says the hatchery technology company’s Operations Manager, Thomas Calil.

“Our project teams have worked in close cooperation, to develop the new system that will expand production at Ibiaça – and we look forward to a long and successful partnership, as Agro Danieli realises its fullest potential in terms of the quality and number of chicks produced,” Calil.

The project is being financed by FINAME – a government scheme for the acquisition of new, domestically-manufactured machinery and equipment through accredited financial institutions.

Agro Danieli’s new Smart Hatchery will be operational in the second semester of 2010.
