Panama Canal Expansion: IHC Merwede Dredgers at Work (VIDEO)

The custom-built cutter suction dredger QUIBIÁN I and the backhoe dredger ALBERTO ALEMÁN ZUBIETA were selected by the Panama Canal Authority to help with expansion and maintenance work.

The expansion project will make the Canal wider and deeper to handle larger ships and increased traffic.

This development program consists of the construction of two new sets of locks – one on the Pacific and one on the Atlantic side of the Canal. Each lock will have three chambers and each chamber will have three water reutilization basins.
