Fluor provided the construction and installation for a 1,000-ton-per-day black liquor recovery boiler, a 416-ton-per-day lightweight-coated paper machine, a 250-ton-per-day purchased-pulp slushing area and a 140-ton-per-day thermomechanical pulping facility. Staffing the project with sufficient numbers of qualified personnel was a significant factor in the project's successful completion. To ensure the project had the necessary skilled craft workers, Fluor used its extensive network to employed more than 1,800 craft personnel at the peak.
This was the largest open shop project ever undertaken in Maine at the time. Fluor developed specialized training programs for skill augmentation. More than 1,600 individuals received this training in supervisory skills, craft disciplines and safety.
