Postgraduate Student Site Tour of Orica Manufacturing Plant

A group of Newcastle Business School postgraduate students recently undertook a site tour of Orica Manufacturing Plant, located at Kooragang Island.

Orica's Kooragang Island facility is an integral part of the company's global operations. The facility includes an ammonia plant, three nitric acid plants, two ammonium nitrate plants and a product despatch facility. Orica makes an important contribution to the local Newcastle community, and its operations play a key role in the NSW economy, supplying critical products to the mining and infrastructure, agriculture, water supply, food, dairy and medical sectors. 

The industry site tour provided the postgraduate students with an opportunity to see theory in practice, and ask questions of professionals in situ. It was facilitated by the Faculty of Business and Law as a Professional Preparation initiative.
