Panama Canal Authority begins construction bids review

Panama Canal Authority begins construction bids review

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) last Friday started reviewing bids for the first construction project under the canal’s $5 billion expansion program.

   The ACP received 10 bids to perform the dry excavation of the new Pacific Locks access channel and said a winner will be determined in the coming weeks.

   On May 7, the authority released its tender for the excavation — the first of five dry excavation projects that will link the new post-Panamax locks on the Pacific end of the canal with the existing Gaillard Cut (the narrowest stretch in the Panama Canal).

   The project is the first construction-related expansion tender and represents about 16 percent of the total excavation for the new Pacific Locks access channel, the ACP said.
