Starting in 1983, Fluor assisted Eastman Kodak in preparation of the technical and commercial proposals that served as the basis for Kodak's contract with XPMC. Once the project was released, Fluor provided the detailed engineering for the making and finishing building, incinerator building and waste treatment area.
Fluor provided on-site technical advisors in Xiamen and project and material management assistance in Rochester, New York, where engineering activities and offshore procurement of major equipment took place.
Fluor's Houston, Texas office also performed engineering and procurement for the emulsions-making section and the silver-recovery section. The Houston office assisted its Chinese client partners in developing the design of the buildings to house the processes and handling all internal utility piping and HVAC installation.
