Based on present and projected levels of Gatun Lake for the upcoming weeks, the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has announced that, effective 25 July 2020, the maximum authorised draft for vessels transiting the neopanamax locks will be 14.63 m (48 ft) tropical fresh water (TFW).

Vessels arriving with drafts over 14.63 m (48 ft) TFW may be allowed to transit, depending on the actual level of Gatun Lake at the time of transit. Otherwise, they will be required to trim or off-load cargo in order to be allowed to transit.

The ACP will continue to monitor the level of Gatun Lake in order to announce future draft adjustments in a timely manner.
