In recent years, the Kurgan Broiler poultry farm, which is part of the Agromars Complex, has not been serviced, repaired or rebuilt; the enterprise has emergency facilities, the operation of which could result in human casualties, said ex-director Alexey Taranov.
Kurgan Broiler poultry farm, which is part of Complex Agromars, needs to be closed and modernized, Latifundist.com said in an interview ex-director of the enterprise Alexey Taranov.
“The enterprise today needs to be rebooted. In recent years, it has only been operated. They have not been serviced, repaired, or rebuilt. There are emergency facilities at the poultry farm, the operation of which could result in human casualties. I do not want to take on this responsibility,” he.
Taranov claims that the company’s boilers have not been serviced for eight years and may explode at any time, the factory itself does not have labor protection, training, medical examination of personnel and equipment maintenance.
“This enterprise was simply abandoned. Yes, it brought money. But, in fact, it has now been abandoned. And, by the way, it is forbidden to operate according to the court decision and the requirements of the Ministry of Emergencies. Courts went on for two years. All this time people went to work, risking their own lives. There is a court decision, but, of course, no one is going to execute it. The poultry farm needs to be stopped, modernized, and all technical problems eliminated, “the ex-manager is convinced.
He said that the company has growing debts for gas and electricity, and debt reached about 5-6 million UAH. Taranov believes that for the resuscitation of a poultry farm, it takes from 36 to 45 days to repair boiler rooms, warehouses, production workshops, which are in disrepair and “could collapse and bury people under themselves.” It is also necessary to solve the problem of litter storage.
“It has been accumulating over the years, and today about 100 thousand tons of litter has been stored on this site. This problem cannot be solved in any way. This is an irresponsible attitude not only to our own enterprise, but also to the legislation of Ukraine, our own people who work there. But this is company policy, “said the former director.
Kurgan Broiler Poultry Farm is one of the largest closed-loop chicken enterprises in eastern Ukraine. Its production capacity is up to 2 thousand tons of meat per month. The number of employees in the factory reaches five hundred.
