The Giant in Panama (VIDEO)

The Canal de Panamá has just released this amazing video which shows the backhoe dredger Alberto Aleman Zubieta during its deepening work on the Panama Canal Expansion Project.

Royal IHC delivered the giant to Autoridad del Canal de Panama (ACP) in 2013.

The vessel is equipped with three spud hoist winches, one spud carrier winch, seven auxiliary winches, two mooring winches, three deck cranes and two thrusters with power of 300kW each.

This dredger has also been designed to carry out maintenance works on the canal.

The backhoe measures 62.2m in length and 23m in breadth. It has a maximum dredging depth of 19.5m, with a backhoe bucket of 31.5m³ and provides daytime accommodation for ten people.
