New lock gates on their way to Panama Canal
The Panama Canal Authority said 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.
