Panama Canal: International Maintenance Congress Approaches
Experts from the United States, Latin America and Europe will participate in the second Panama Canal International Maintenance Congress, scheduled for August 27 – 29, 2014, within the framework of the waterway’s centennial.
The main theme of this three-day event will be “Investing in Maintenance: Key to Competitiveness and Sustainability”. Experts in the fields of maintenance and engineering will participate in the congress, sharing their knowledge and experiences in training for a culture of prevention.
The presentations will focus on three areas: reliability and assets condition monitoring, maintenance of civil infrastructure and maintenance management.
“This year, the congress has a special significance since it will be held during our centennial. That is why we have made our best efforts to bring the most important international speakers knowledgeable on the subject,” said Panama Canal Administrator Jorge Luis Quijano. “This year’s program includes an area dedicated to maintenance of civil infrastructure, something new in this type of congress, which generally focus on the maintenance of equipment.”
