Art Anderson Awarded Port of Portland Contract

Press Release
Thursday, March 29, 2012

Art Anderson Associates, a Bremerton-based multidisciplinary engineering services firm, was recently awarded a contract for On-Call Naval Architect Design Services with the Navigation Division of the Port of Portland.  The Navigation Division owns and operates a fleet of vessels and barges, including the Dredge Oregon, and has retained the firm to provide naval architecture and marine engineering services in support of fleet maintenance and operations. 

While the firm has maintained a presence in the Portland area for many years, providing facilities construction management services on behalf of the U.S. General Services Administration, it is only recently that it has focused on doing more naval architecture and marine work in the region.  Active projects include upgrades to the Clackamas County Canby Ferry, new fish passage facilities on the Swift and Clackamas Rivers, and continued engineering support for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s research vessel fleet, whose homeport recently moved to Newport, Oregon.

“The award marks Art Anderson Associates’ first-ever prime agreement with the Port of Portland,” said Ralph Duncan, VP of Marine.  “This award supports our growth strategy in the Oregon market.” 

Duncan emphasized that the award of this contract with the Port is just the first step in what he hopes will be a long-term relationship that is mutually rewarding for both the firm and the Port.
