Orbital built the first controlling boards for AgriFarm in 2013 and has since 2016 been the supplier of all programming and controlling boards for IntelliFarm® pig stable. The stable system has a row of obvious advantages. It is possible to increase the number of produced pigs with remarkably less use of energy and at the same time reduce the environment and climate impact from the stable. Advantages which above all increases the pig farmers bottom line report.
Automation and controlling systems are essential in IntelliFarm® stables. Therefore it is important for AgriFarm to have a control supplier and business partner who possess the right competences and knowledge with-in automation. It ensure the design of the controlling system to meet the quality demands at IntelliFarm®. Furthermore, it is important to AgriFarm to being able to offer a standardised solution which creates transparency in project phases of new IntelliFarm® stables.
This is what Mr Hans Jørgen Pedersen, CEO AgriFarms, says about having Orbital as a business partner, ”To us it is an advantage to have Orbital as our steady and competent supplier. They handle all aspects of the programming and controlling systems for our IntelliFarm® stables. We have a focal point at Orbital and we appreciate this as to support, dialogue on improvements and developments of features”.
