Scheduled Maintenance at Pedro Miguel Locks (Panamax Locks)

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has announced an upcoming period of scheduled maintenance at the Pedro Miguel Locks (Panamax Locks) from July 9-19, 2024.

Beginning at 0400 hours on Tuesday, July 9, 2024, until 0400 hours on Friday, July 19, 2024 (10 Days), the centre wall culvert of Pedro Miguel Locks will be out of service for scheduled maintenance on cylindrical and rising stem valves. Lockages will take additional time during the maintenance period.

No decrease in capacity is expected, therefore, the limitation in the number of restricted vessels and the number of slots per direction for Supers and Regulars in the Panamax Locks will remain unchanged. Also, the Just-In-Time (JIT) transit slots available for supers and regular vessels transiting without restrictions, will remain in one (1) per direction.
