The new contract, which is estimated to be around $70 million, will see Downer EDI take control of the majority of engineering works.
The $70 contract involves the design, planning and installation of piping, structural, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation at the new ammonium nitrate plant.

Downer EDI will start work straight away at the TAN Burrup site, and is expected to be finished by the end of March 2015.
What is Ammonium Nitrate?
Ammonium nitrate is a chemical compound with the formula NH4NO3. It is composed of nitric acid and salt of ammonia. Ammonium Nitrate is generally used as a fertilizer. It is available in pellet form with a clay coating. The reason for its popularity in agriculture is because of the high nitrogen. Nitrogen is a very important plant nutrient that assists in the growth and metabolic processes that the plant undergoes.

iMINCO strongly advises people applying for Downer EDI jobs to first take a step back and review their resume to assess whether it is relevant to the job being advertised.
Companies like Downer, employ specialist teams of recruiters and in-house Human resource manager to personally review applications – that is if the resume makes it past digital scanning software. Just because an application is submitted, does not guarantee it will even reach a human – for review.
If a resume is badly constructed, contains spelling and grammatical errors, does not contain the right mix of keywords and qualifications (course codes etc) – then it will more than likely be rejected instantly. This is often a cause of great frustration for many job seekers as they never get to hear why their application was rejected.
Having no feedback only compounds the issue for applicants, who do not understand why their application was rejected – therefore, there is no means to benchmark for improvement.
