Four New Lock Gates on Its Way to Panama Canal

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) reports that the ship Sun Rise, with four new gates for the Third Set of Locks, has sailed for Panama from Trieste, Italy.

The ship is expected to arrive to Panama in mid-June, depending on weather conditions.

“This is another important milestone towards the completion of a project that will have an important impact on the international maritime community,” said Panama Canal Administrator Jorge Luis Quijano.
