International Dredging Review

International Dredging Review
MENUMENU

After months of preparation on March 19 bidders submitted proposals to the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) today for an opportunity to dredge the Expansion Program’s Pacific entrance. This phase of the project will widen the canal’s 8.9 mile-long (14.2 km) navigation channels at least 715 feet (218 meters) and deepen them to a maximum level of -51 feet (-15.5 meters) Mean Low Water Springs (MLWS) to ensure that longer wider ships can reach the new locks.

The ACP will review the bids and award the contract to the bidder that offers the best price and meets the project’s terms and criteria established in the Request for Proposal (RFP).
