First Italian turkey poults hatched using Petersime Operational Excellence Technology™
In the sunny south of Europe, the first Italian turkey poults have hatched using the Petersime Operational Excellence Technology™. Mr Locatelli, Hatchery Manager of Gobbi Frattini, confided that he “already noticed improvements.”
Optimized incubator features
Gobbi Frattini is one of the turkey producers in Italy. For the renovation of its turkey hatchery, the company ordered 8 Petersime BioStreamer™ 4TS setters with Operational Excellence Technology™ and an integrated control system Eagle Eye™. What does the Operational Excellence Technology™ by Petersime encompass?
- The controller has been upgraded to improve user friendliness. Also, the use of personal access badges enables access control and traceability of interventions.
- A more efficient way of cooling ensures more uniformity in the incubators and decreases the water consumption by 5%, thereby reducing the energy bill of the chiller. This cooling system considers the stage of embryonic development, and thus leads to a better chick quality.
- The design of the pulsator blades has been improved, leading to a reduced energy consumption of 10%.
Mr Pierpaolo Locatelli, Hatchery Manager of Gobbi Frattini, comments: “We immediately saw improvements in the ventilation in the setter and in the weight loss of the chicks. The setters are indeed easy to program. Moreover, the use of personal access badges allows us to trace interventions to optimize our results.”
Mr Gobbi Frattini, owner of the company, says: “When we decided to build a turkey hatchery years ago, we heard positive comments about Petersime, who was said to have high-end incubators and who was very specialized in turkey. We had high expectations. I was - and am still - very satisfied by the service delivered by Petersime and MG Hi-Tech, our distributor for Petersime equipment in Italy. Today our expectations are higher still: we aim to grow in the coming years, delivering high quality products. Thanks to the new Operational Excellence Technology™ that was installed by a very qualified local Petersime technician, we have the avant-garde hatchery to reach that goal.”
