ROMANIA - Avicola Calarasi (Romania) has signed a hatchery modernisation project with Petersime.

Romanian poultry industry player, Avicola Calarasi, has chosen Petersime for the complete refurbishment of its broiler hatchery in Calarasi (120 km from Bucharest).


Hanna Daher (owner) and Olando Daher (executive director) signing the agreement at the Petersime offices. Petersime is represented by Silviu Popescu (distributor for Romania), Michel De Clercq (managing director), Tom Dewaele (manager, global sales) and Hendrik Botha (manager, finance, administration & information systems).

The upgraded facility will be equipped with state-of-the-art AirStreamer incubators featuring Synchro-Hatch, Petersime's latest Embryo-Response based technology for the shortest possible hatch window and maximum chick uniformity and quality. In addition, the new setters and hatchers stand to save the company up to 50 per cent in power consumption thanks to Petersime's environment-friendly Eco-Drive system.

Petersime's in-house Project Department will also be designing, engineering and installing the complete air handling, ventilation and water cooling system.

Avicola Calarasi is a subsidiary of the Nutricom group, one of Romania's top three producers in the pig, poultry and animal feed industry. It currently employs a workforce of 1,300 at its various sites in Calarasi County.
