PANAMA FLASH! RE: Scheduled maintenance at Gatun Locks and the Transit Reservation System
June 22nd, 2023
Beginning at 0400 hours on Tuesday, June 27, 2023, until 1600 hours on Wednesday, July 5, 2023 (8 days), the sidewall culvert on the East Lane of Gatun Locks will be out of service for scheduled maintenance on rising stem valves. The East Lane will remain available but the lockages will take some additional time.
No decrease in capacity is expected, therefore Condition 1.a for the Panamax locks will remain in effect, and the Just-In-Time (JIT) transit slots available for supers and regular vessels transiting without restrictions, will remain in one per direction. Also, the slots for Neopanamax vessels will remain unchanged during this period.
