Panama Canal Authority (ACP) Administrator/CEO Alberto Alemán Zubieta, joined by DEME Group CEO Alain Bernard, recently unveiled a model of the D’Artagnan dredger during a ceremony at the Panama Canal’s Miraflores Visitors’ Center.

The D’Artagnan is the most powerful self-propelled heavy duty cutter suction dredger in the world, with its special design for cutting rocks and sand dredging. Owned by Belgian company Dredging International (part of the DEME group), the D’Artagnan will be used in the expansion of the Panama Canal.
