PND Wins AAHPA Golden Anchor Award

In a serendipitous twist of fate, PND Engineers, Inc. - celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019 - won the inaugural Golden Anchor Award at the 40th annual Alaska Association of Harbormasters & Port Administrators (AAHPA) Conference from Sept. 30 to Oct. 4, 2019, at Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall in downtown Juneau, Alaska. PND was co-founded by Elizabeth's oldest son, Roy Peratrovich, Jr.

PND Vice President, Principal Engineer, and Juneau Office Coordinator Dick Somerville, PE, accepted the award on PND's behalf. Somerville was presented with a plaque and a certificate signed by AAHPA President Carl Uchytil. The certificate reads:

"PND Engineers have been Association members since 1979 and have supported numerous organizational initiatives leading to the improvements and recapitalization of harbors. Always a participant at AAHPA annual conferences, PND Engineers have established the reputation of presenting complex engineering and construction topics in a manner which is interesting and intelligible to all conference attendees. Over the years, PND Engineers’ financial support and reliability in sponsoring the annual banquet has helped AAHPA maintain a fiscally solvent bottom line. The professional services PND provides to the AAHPA Corporate Members has been described as world class. From Ketchikan to Unalaska and the Arctic, PND has a proven track record of delivering quality engineering design and construction execution oversight. Throughout the state, but especially in Southeast Alaska, it is difficult to find a safe harbor which does not have a PND influence. On behalf of the 43 member harbors, it is with great pride to award the inaugural Golden Anchor award to PND Engineers for their achievement and support to the AAHPA and its Corporate Members."
