In 2009, the design and construction was underway on the installation of the third set of locks, which was awarded to Grupo Unidos por el Canal (GUPC), a consortium of Sacyr Vallehermoso S.A. (Spain), Impregilo (Italy), Jan de Nul (Belgium), and Constructora Urbana (Panama). At approximately 4.3 million cubic meters of concrete poured at both the Pacific and Atlantic sites, this Expansion Program is the largest and most comprehensive the Canal has seen. One vast element of the project includes the installation of new locks. At 57 meters long, 30 meters high and 10 meters wide with an average of max weight of 3,700 tons, sufficient concrete pavement was needed in order to transport the locks from the existing canal to the new location. Details of the project can be found Here.

After the lock installation, the roadway used to transport the locks leading into the canal chambers needed to be removed quickly. Insert Resonant Machines. At an approximate thickness ranging from 11-17 inches (28-45cm) with double-matted No. 5 rebar, RMI handled the immense pavement with near perfection: the double-matted steel was debonded and pavement reduced to 9" minus material. A successful project for RMI, and a great partnerships with everyone involved at GUPC!
