Panama Canal postpones new draft limits due to rainfall
With plenty of rain finally falling over the past week in Panama, the authorities have postponed a sixth draft restriction of 2019. The maximum authorised draft of 13.11 m for vessels transiting the new neopanamax locks and 11.73 m for vessels transiting the old panamax locks will become effective June 12 instead of May 28. The current maximum authorised draft stands at 13.41 m. “We will continue to monitor the level of Gatun Lake and announce future draft adjustments in a timely manner,” the Panama Canal Authority stated in a note to shipping lines.
Maximum authorized draft for Neopanamax locks
Based on the present and projected level of Gatun Lake for the following weeks, effective February 27, 2019, the maximum authorized draft for vessels transiting the Neopanamax Locks will be 14.63m (48.0 feet) Tropical Fresh Water (TFW). Vessels arriving with drafts over 14.63 m (48.0 feet) TFW may be allowed to transit past February 27, 2019, depending on the actual level of Gatun Lake at the time of transit.
