Four new lock gates en route to Panama

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has confirmed that the mv Sun Rise, with four new gates for the third set of locks, has sailed for Panama from Trieste, Italy and is expected to arrive mid-June, depending on weather conditions.

This is the second shipment of gates being transported to Panama. Currently in the country are four other gates that arrived in August 2013.

The Panama Canal Expansion Programme is currently 74% complete.
