Panama Canal Puts Cocoli Locks through Paces

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) conducted another trial transit in the Expanded Canal on June 20, with a US-built crane ship Oceanus traversing the Pacific-facing Cocoli Locks.

The inauguration of the Expanded Panama Canal will take place on Sunday, June 26.

The first vessel to cross the Expanded Panama Canal during its inauguration will be China COSCO Shipping’s container vessel Andronikos.

On June 10, the Neopanamax dry bulk carrier MN Baroque transited the new Atlantic-facing Agua Clara Locks as a part of a series of training events.

Once inaugurated later this week, the expanded canal will double the waterway’s cargo capacity, with Neopanamax vessels able to transit.
