Valves for new locks mark milestone for Panama Canal

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

The Panama Canal Expansion Program passes a milestone with the arrival of a first shipment of valves for the third set of locks.

The valves were built in South Korea by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries, and arrived on board the vessel BCC England.

“This marks a new milestone for the Panama Canal expansion works, particularly for the construction of the new locks,” Panama Canal administrator Jorge L. Quijano said.
