Panama: ACP Presents Model of D’Artagnan Dredger at Miraflores Center

Panama Canal Authority (ACP) which operates and maintains the Panama Canal recently unveiled a model of the D’Artagnan dredger during a ceremony at the Panama Canal’s Miraflores Visitors’ Center.

The D’Artagnan will be the most powerful self-propelled heavy duty cutter suction dredger in the world, with its special design for cutting rocks and sand dredging. Owned by Belgian company Dredging International (part of the DEME group), the new vessel will be used in the expansion of the Panama Canal.
