Alabama Port Authority Contracts Study

The Alabama State Port Authority (ASPA) has awarded Moffatt & Nichol a contract to develop a Maritime Strategic Development Study.

The Port of Mobile which ranks as the 11th largest port in the United States in total trade is a significant economic contributor to the State of Alabama. In an effort to expand its operations to meet future demand the port authority commissioned the study to define the port’s potential improvements that will optimize its facilities and operations and the economic benefits of these improvements on Mobile’s local and regional community.

Planning and engineering company Moffatt & Nichol has a record of performance with the ASPA having conducted a number of planning and design assignments for its facilities. The company has been active in marine terminal planning and design for more than 60 years.

“The ASPA and the Port of Mobile face unique opportunities and challenges over the coming years. We are honored to partner with the port in the development of this study which we believe will enable the port to expand its operations and realize its full potential” said Eric Nichol Moffatt & Nichol president.
