Moy Park opens UK's largest
single-build hatchery
Supplying 2.5 million chicks to Moy Park farmers each week, the

The largest singlebuild hatchery in the
U.K. started delivering chicks at the end
of September 2017.

Lincolnshire.
With a capacity of 2.5 million chicks per week, the
company says the facility is "world class" and employs
industry-leading technology
Stephen Urwin, Moy Park general manager broilers
and hatcheries, Great Britain, explains: "Most hatcheries
have evolved by extending existing sites, whereas this
was a completely new build."
"By designing it from scratch, from the ground up,
we have ensured it has the best possible production,
animal welfare, and hygiene and biosecurity standards,"
he said.
The new development sits on a 2.63 hectare site,
with the hatchery building extending to more than
8,000 square meters. In addition, service buildings
have been constructed along with water tanks
and parking facilities.
Where biosecurity is concerned, the hatchery

was designed with the highest standards in mind from
drainage to ventilation systems. All personnel entering
the facility go through a full showering procedure and
all eggs and equipment entering the building are fully
sanitized prior to entry.

Energy efficient
But Urwin also points out that the facility is 25 percent more energy efficient than previous hatcheries and
that Moy Park has installed the latest proven technologies.
These include variable speed fans, incubators and heat
recovery systems. The building has a high level of insulation and an integrated building management system that
covers all energy inputs and outputs and offers measurement and ease of management.
The company decided to build the hatchery at the
Newark Industrial Park, not only because the site is well
positioned relative to its farms, but additionally the location benefits from being close to a good road network.
Fertilized eggs come from Moy Park's breeder farms
in Great Britain and Ireland, and chicks are sent to farmers on 60 Moy Park farms. The facility is already running
at full capacity.
The new hatchery has created 55 new jobs in the area
and Moy Park notes that its staff have access to premium
facilities and additional training opportunities. ■
