The Worlds Largest REVIT project to date

Expanding the Panama Canal

It’s been called one of the seven wonders of the modern world. A century after it first opened, the Panama Canal continues to be a vital shortcut for global commerce – but now, almost half the world’s cargo ships are too large to fit through it.

This year, MHW Global’s redesign will change that.

 The Project
Expanding existing channels:
Widen -   21.3m / 70ft
Deepen -  5.4m / 18ft
Lengthen - 121m / 400ft

Create a new channel, with 3 new lock chambers on each side. Raise the maximum operating level of Gatun Lake, the primary water source for the locks
