Programa de Ampliación del Canal de Panamá


Panamá es un importante eslabón de la cadena de suministro mundial debido a que su posición geográfica con el Canal ha acortado distancias y ha servido como centro de redistribución de mercancías a diversos países de la región.

Luego de profundos estudios y análisis, Panamá tomó la decisión de ampliar esta ruta añadiéndole un tercer carril de tránsito para duplicar su capacidad.

La ampliación del Canal de Panamá consiste en la construcción de dos complejos de esclusas de tres niveles cada una con tres tinas de reutilización de agua por nivel, una en el lado Pacífico y otra en el lado Atlántico.

Este programa conlleva también el ensanche y profundización de los cauces de navegación existentes del Lago Gatún y de las entradas del mar del Pacífico y del Atlántico, así como la profundización del Corte Culebra.

Las nuevas esclusas del Canal de Panamá permitirán el paso de entre 10 y 12 buques Neopanamax, para un aproximado de 40 tránsitos diarios por el Canal de Panamá, dependiendo de la mezcla de buques.
