January 3, 2018, Cambridge, Ont. – Canadian incubator company Jamesway was a key contributor to an innovative new hatchery in Guatemala.

Incubadora Regional in the municipality of Escuintla opened its new hatchery last month.

The facility will have an output of 362,880 eggs per week and, most notably, will be totally solar powered.

Roberto Ordonez, owner of the family operated business, welcomed guests to the hatchery’s grand opening and proudly displayed the solar panels and Jamesway machines.

In a press release, Jesus Campa, sales manager for Jamesway’s Latin American region, said, “This is a special project and we are really happy to be involved with it.”

The facility includes 2,000 m2 of solar cells, which are anticipated to produce 100% of the hatchery’s electrical needs.
