Panama Canal expansion enters trial phase

Wednesday, March 2, 2016

GUPC, the consortium building the new Panama Canal locks, said that in the next two months it would conduct more than 2,000 trials in the Pacific and Caribbean sectors of the expanded waterway, focusing on gates, valves, electric power and control systems.

Some systems are already being operated from the control towers and the buildings where machines are located "are almost finished," said GUPC's project director.
