Panama Canal prepares for fourth dry excavation project

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) will soon solicit bids for the fourth and last dry excavation project. The project will be the final phase in creating an access channel that will link the new Pacific locks with the canal’s existing Gaillard Cut, the narrowest stretch of the Panama Canal.

The scope of work will include the excavation, removal and disposal of approximately 27 million cubic metres of non-classified material.
