Widening the Panama canal – what is happening and what will its impact be?

28 October 2013

For many years the dimensions of the Panama Canal have dictated the upper size of commonly occurring cargo vessels to “Panamax” at circa 294m length, 32m beam and 12m draught. Larger vessels have had to transit Cape Horn, and hence become known as “Capesize”. When the new set of locks are opened in 2014 the ”New Panamax” is set to be 366m length, 49m beam and 15m draught, increasing the size of container ships transiting the canal from about 5,000teu to 12,000teu. This is set to be one of the greatest changes in shipping patterns for many years.

PIANC UK with its major interest in navigation and shipping is keen to celebrate the event. This was the first, prior to its opening, of a number of technical seminars on the subject.
