Maintenance continues in the Panama Canal

Panama Canal Authority reported a $238 million USD investment to improve structures and equipment in order to provide efficient service to the international maritime community.

“The key to the Panama Canal’s operational excellence is a combination of its committed workforce and constant maintenance,” Executive Vice President for Operations Esteban Saenz said. “Each year we dedicate significant resources to this aspect of the Canal.”

According to Breaking Travel News, the main areas of maintenance include, among others, the navigation channel through dredging operations; the control of erosion and landslides; floating equipment such as tugboat, dredges, cranes and launches; the locks and their components; and the dams, landfills, power plants, buildings and facilities.
