14 year Panama administration

14 year Panama administration
On the countdown to its centennial in 2014, the Panama Canal celebrates 14 years under Panamanian administration, characterized by its enhanced service to world maritime trade.

 

The Panamanian management model has enabled the efficient and safe operation of the Canal, allowing it to offer a world-class service.

Cutting-Edge Infrastructure

Under Panamanian administration, the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has improved its service to world maritime trade through the permanent maintenance and modernization of its infrastructure. Approximately, US$2 billion have been invested since 2000.

During fiscal year (FY) 2014 (October 1, 2013 to September 30, 2014), the ACP will invest approximately US$238 million in maintenance of structures and equipment to continue providing an efficient service to the international maritime community. The main areas of maintenance include, among others, the navigation channel through dredging operations; the control of erosion and landslides; floating equipment such as tugboat, dredges, cranes and launches; the locks and their components; and the dams, landfills, power plants, buildings and facilities.

Panama Canal Expansion

In 2007, the Panama Canal Expansion Program began as a result of a widespread approval by Panamanians in a national referendum. The Expansion Program will create a new lane of traffic along the Canal by building a new set of locks which will allow the transit of bigger ships with more capacity. This is the greatest modernization project of the waterway since it was opened in 1914.

To date, the Expansion Program is 70.7% complete with several components completed such as the dredging of the Atlantic and Pacific entrances, while the construction of the new locks is 64% complete. During the past six years, the Expansion Program has generated 31,000 direct jobs.
