Austral Plant

Dyno Nobel Explosives Chile (DNEC) inaugurated its first plant on July 20, 2010 in Las Barrancas Coquimbo, 4th region of Chile under the name Southern Ground. Its head office is located in Santiago, capital of Chile.

The plant is approximately 2,800 square meters.  The architecture chosen for its construction matches ecologic structures and promotes a warm and friendly work environment.  DNEC also offers services for loading explosives, magazine management and technical support to its customers.

Today, DNEC has 35 working staff between the plant and Matrix house.
