General Contractor GUPC (Sacyr Vallehermoso/Impregilo/Jan de Nul/Constructora Urbana J.V.) selected Maxon Agitors and Surgecretes for use in the expansion of the Panama Canal, one of the largest civil projects in recent history. GUPC will construct new lock chambers on both the Atlantic and Pacific sides (which will add a third lane to the canal). The new locks will accommodate the larger Post-Panamax containerships which are up to 2.5 times the size of vessels that could previously navigate the canal.
