Re:  Neopanamax draft Adjustment.

ADV17-2021 – March 15th, 2021

Based on the present and projected level of Gatun Lake for the upcoming weeks, the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) announces that effective April 13, 2021, the maximum authorized draft allowed for vessels transiting the Neopanamax locks will be 14.78 m (48.5 feet) TFW.

Vessels arriving with drafts over 14.78 m (48.5 feet) TFW may be allowed to transit past April 13, 2021, depending on the actual level of Gatun Lake at the time of transit. Otherwise, vessels will be required to trim or off-load cargo in order to be allowed to transit.
