Agro Gogu SRL operates 300 ha of agricultural land in the Anenii Noi region with a fleet of agricultural vehicles. The company planned to expand its activity range by adding a milk production unit. To this end the company constructed a new milk production farm housing 200 Jersey cows.
One key aspect of Agro Gogu’s expansion was the investment in modern equipment for dairy cattle raising, milking and milk cooling.
The investment was financed with a EU4Business-EBRD Credit Line loan and the company received free-of-charge technical support from a team of international experts for the optimization of the investment.
Apart from a substantial expansion of its business activities, the technical assistance provided ensured that the equipment installed as part of the investment project assures high quality milk production for the Moldovan market, safeguards the health and safety of the workers and minimizes the environmental impact of the new dairy operation.
Furthermore, after the successful implementation and verification of this project, the company received 15% of the loan value as a grant incentive, funded under the EU4Business initiative of the European Union.
With the implementation of this project, the company now meets wide variety of European standards:
Purchasing of the equipment for dairy cattle raising, milking and milk cooling
EU Directives met
Regulations related to machinery, electrical equipment and H&S of workers and environmental protection
Primary Energy Savings and GHG reduction
Energy Savings Ratio: 28.6%
