Turnkey hatchery of first stage in ACOLID’s new integrated poultry project up and running
Farming business Arab Company for Livestock Development (ACOLID) has partnered with Petersime on the first stage of its Arab Takamul Poultry Pure Lines project in Al Qassim, Saudi Arabia. Now 100% operational, the new turnkey single-stage hatchery as part of the project reaches a full capacity of 11 million broiler chickens per year.
ACOLID and Petersime collaborate on set-up of high-quality turnkey hatchery
Arab Company for Livestock Development (ACOLID) has once again placed its trust in Petersime for the complete lay-out, equipment and installation of their new turnkey hatchery in Al Qassim. As long-time business partners, we have collaborated on projects in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Sudan over the past few decades.
ACOLID’s management expressed its satisfaction: “Once again, Petersime has helped us in building an efficient, strong-performing and successful hatchery. As expected after our previous collaborations, the project set-up was followed up and completed smoothly, as well as the hatchery installation on-site, thanks to the expertise of the Petersime team.”
The Arab Takamul hatchery in Al Qassim is equipped with 12 single-stage BioStreamer™ High Density (HD)12S setters and 6 4H hatchers, including a hatchery air handling and air conditioning system custom-built by Petersime. To maximise its hatchery performance and achieve the highest chick quality, Arab Takamul uses Petersime’s Embryo-Response Incubation™ technology to continuously control and adapt the incubation parameters inside the HD incubators and create the optimal incubation environment. Finally, the entire hatchery is closely monitored with the Eagle Eye™ software system.
