Panama Canal Requests Proposals for Pacific Entrance Dredging

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has released its request for proposal (RFP) for the Canal’s Pacific entrance dredging. Different from the dry excavation, this project will deepen and widen the Canal’s Pacific entrance channel to ensure that longer, wider ships can reach the new locks.

The document is available at: http://www.pancanal.com/eng/procsales/buy.html

The scope of work will include the dredging of approximately 9.1 million cubic meters and will widen the 8.9 mile-long navigation channels at least 218 meters, deepening them to a maximum level of -15.5 meters Mean Low Water Springs (MLWS).
