2nd Shipment of ACP-Bound New Locks Equipment Departs Trieste, Italy

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) announced yesterday that the semi-submersible vessel STX Sun Rise, loaded with four new gates for the third set of locks, has sailed from Trieste, Italy for Panama.

STX Sun Rise is expected to arrive to Panama in mid-June, depending on weather conditions.

This is another important milestone towards the completion of a project that will have an important impact on the international maritime community,” said Panama Canal Administrator Jorge Luis Quijano.

The Panama Canal Expansion Program is the largest engineering effort to be undertaken at the canal since the original construction of the waterway began more than a century ago. The program is currently 74% complete.
