HIDROSTANK has supplied to the awarded joint venture, Grupo Unidos por el Canal (GUPC), led by SACYR, its innovative reinforced polypropylene access chambers to the works of the PANAMA CANAL, one of the great engineering feats of the XXI century.
The expansion of the Panama Canal will increase by 40% the capacity of transit of goods of existing waterways that link the Atlantic to the Pacific and is part of the integral program to expand the Canal capacity.
HIDROSTANK has worked closely with the technicians of the awarded consortium Grupo Unidos por el Canal (GUPC) to define the best solution for the electrical and telecommunications manholes.
This project, the first PANAMA, joins the already performed in Europe, South America, Africa and Asia.
