Completed in 2014


Founded by dynamite inventor Alfred Nobel in the 1860’s, Dyno Nobel grew to become today’s global leader in the production of commercial explosives. In North America alone, over 15 million pounds of explosives are used each day for mining, road building, pipeline construction and infrastructure projects where rock is encountered and for seismic activities associated with oil & gas exploration.

In August of 2013, Dyno Nobel selected KBR for the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction of a new ammonia plant. Shortly after, ISC was selected by Dyno Nobel and KBR to engineer and construct a temporary power system for the new grassroots ammonia plant in Waggaman, LA.

From the moment that ISC was engaged with this project, it was clear that the number one common goal shared by all on site was that of safety. This sense of empowerment attributed to ISC’s perfect safety record including ZERO Incidents, ZERO First Aids, and ZERO Recordable Injuries spanning over the nine month long project.

The vast majority of the work done on our project by ISC was performed for KBR, the main EPC contractor for our project. Although ISC was working for KBR, Dyno Nobel was intimately monitoring the progress and quality of their work. From our perspective, both were outstanding. Further, the ISC staff were at all times very professional, extremely safety conscious, always courteous and customer friendly.
