Brazilian poultry producer Copacol is installing the second phase of its hatchery expansion in Goioerê/PR to double production capacity to 3,5 mln eggs per week.
The fully automated facility started to be operational 4 years ago, and continues expansion with doubling the complete automation by Viscon, from egg receipt to chick delivery. The second phase is is planned to be operational in Q4 of this year. Copacol is the first Brazilian hatchery equipped with two complete Vinovo Select Lines including two in-ovo vacation devices, which can reach up to 96.000 egg per hour.
Viscon’s technical team is working closely with Copacol to achieve a successful installation, and aims to stay a valuable partner for Copacol in the future.
