Panama Canal Expansion Project Receives First Set of Lock Gates

Since 2008, Talson has worked closely with and supported the Office of Inspector General on the Third Set of Locks project for the Panama Canal Expansion Program. Talson provides construction audit planning and consulting services for various scopes of work including (1) Construction Audit Training, (2) Project Readiness, (3) Risk Assessment, (4) Multi-Year Audit Planning, and (5) Vendor Reviews.

August 2013 marked an exciting milestone for the project as four of the new lock gates, fabricated by Cimolai, S.p.A., were delivered from Italy. The lock gates, which are 57.6 m long, 10 m wide and weigh about 3,100 tons, will be installed on the Atlantic side of the Canal.
