Xylem helps Panama Canal prepare its new locks for opening

When the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) needed help transferring water from a nearby lake to test the new locks for the Panama Canal Expansion project, they called on Xylem. This was a large water transfer project with a very tight deadline. To meet the time challenge, we chartered five Boeing 747's cargo planes to transport the rental pumps and equipment from the USA to Panama.

Our all-star team of field technician's installed pumps and 2.5 miles of HDPE pipe to move 1.7 billion gallons of water into the new set of locks for testing. Xylem provided a turnkey solution, including rental equipment, application engineering, installation services, and a remote monitoring system to the project.

We have the world's largest inventory of rental pumps and related equipment, and the ability to mobilize our vast resources quickly. In combination with the presence and engagement of our Xylem Panama local team, we were able to rapidly deliver the quality services demanded for the execution of the Expansion Program project. We can do the same for you.

Xylem is the leading choice for pumps and dewatering equipment to own or rent because we have:
