Hearing set for Canal expansion claims

The hearing was delayed from last month.

Spanish version

Temas:

An international Court of Arbitration has rescheduled a hearing on claims submitted by primary Panama Canal expansion contractor GUPC thatw as supposed to be held last month to July.

The claims are related to the temporary dam that the contractor had to build on the Pacific side of the project. GUPC received the largest contract of the project, $3.1 billion, to build the third set of locks.

The $218.1 million claim was rejected in the two first instances, by the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) and the Board of Conflict Resolution.

GUPC has not sought to have the claim heard by the court, which is the final step in the appeal process as outlined in the original contract.

The hearing was supposed to take place Dec. 7 in Miami, but GUPC representatives asked for more time to prepare their petition.

There are a number of outstanding claims by the contractor. One relates to the quality of materials that were available to make the concrete on the Pacific side of the project. The contractor has sought a $577 million payment, while the ACP has denied it has any responsibility.

The board decided on a $233.2 million payment, a decision that both sides have appealed.

The project has far exceeded its original budget and is more than a year behind schedule.
