DYNO Nobel will construct 28 new homes costing $10 million in Moranbah for employees of its new $935 million ammonium nitrate plant on Goonyella Rd.
The additional housing is required to ensure the 80-strong full-time operational workforce can live with their families in Moranbah.
Construction of the additional houses was announced at public information sessions held by Dyno Nobel’s parent company, Incitec Pivot Limited, in Moranbah on February 10.
“Having our people live locally benefits them, the community and our business,” Kyle Gimpl, site manager for the Dyno Nobel plant, told residents and representatives of local organisations in the Moranbah Community Centre.
“Building permanent homes in Moranbah is part of our plan to create a stable and well-trained workforce to operate the plant when it reaches full production by the end of March 2012.”
