Introduction: Understanding the Egg Shortage Dilemma

The Federation of Livestock Farmers' Associations of Malaysia (FLFAM) has issued a stern warning about the inadequacy of the egg supply, attributing this crisis to the soaring costs of production. In response to economic pressures, farms across the country have curtailed production by significant margins, exacerbating the issue. With the average cost of producing a single egg hovering around 45sen, the potential removal of subsidies could push the average price to 50sen. The confluence of factors, including exchange rates, escalating feed prices, and issues related to day-old chicks (DOC), paints a complex and challenging picture (The Star 2023).

A Visionary Partnership: Ultech Engineering and DEIF Collaboration


In the pursuit of tackling multifaceted challenges head-on, Ultech Engineering has strategically partnered with DEIF, a globally renowned leader in advanced control systems. The partnership between Ultech Engineering and DEIF birthed ideas taken from a global context to be applied in a local environment. This innovative approach integrates diverse energy sources – traditional grid power, solar energy, and generators – to ensure an uninterrupted and sustainable power supply. At the core of this transformative system lies the advanced AGC 150 Hybrid control system by DEIF, a sophisticated entity adept at seamlessly managing multiple energy inputs for optimal performance.

Unpacking the Hybrid Solution: Components in Detail

Solar Power Integration:

Solar Power Integration

Harnessing Malaysia's abundant sunlight, the hybrid system incorporates cutting-edge photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. These panels, strategically deployed, generate clean and sustainable energy, reducing dependence on conventional power sources. Beyond the immediate benefits for egg production, this aspect aligns with Malaysia's commitment to environmental conservation and sustainable energy practices.

Diesel Generators:

Recognizing the sporadic nature of power outages in rural areas, the hybrid system integrates diesel generators as a reliable backup. These generators act as a fail-safe mechanism, seamlessly taking over in the event of grid failures. This ensures the uninterrupted operation of critical egg production processes, safeguarding against potential losses due to power disruptions.

Ultech Engineering's distinctive dual role as both a distributor and an expert in DEIF's products positions them as a key player if we want a successful implementation of this transformative initiative in Malaysia. Our expertise becomes paramount in seamlessly integrating and customizing DEIF's advanced control systems to address the nuanced needs and challenges faced by Malaysian egg farms.

Collaborative Efforts for Sustainable Impact

Collaborative Efforts for Sustainable Impact

Addressing the pressing egg shortage crisis necessitates collaboration not only within the private sector but also with the Malaysian government. Initiatives that incentivize farms to adopt sustainable energy solutions, provide subsidies for advanced technologies, and support the transition to modernized, efficient production methods can play a pivotal role in revitalizing the egg industry on a national scale.

State Government Collaboration: A Prerequisite for Success


The success of this transformative initiative hinges significantly on collaborative efforts with the Sarawak state government. By aligning state policies with the goals of sustainability and economic revitalization, the state government can contribute substantially to the success of this innovative project. This collaboration could involve the provision of incentives, subsidies, and policy frameworks that encourage the widespread adoption of modernized, energy-efficient practices in the egg production sector.
