Panama Canal new requirement - Installation of a fixed piloting unit (starting from 1 October 2023)

Good day!

I came across this new Panama Canal requirement for vessels transiting the Panama Canal with a beam of 33.2 meters or more.


This is correct, we have already initiated the installation of the equipment as per requirement.


Trimble and WTE Ltd have their Non Portable Pilot Unit (NPU) system approved by the Panama Canal Authority. Its called the MPS566 Pilot system Have a look at Trimble MPS566 Pilot System or WTE website MPS566 Pilot System - WTE Marine
