The ambitious expansion of the colossal Panama Canal, which opened last Sunday, counted on the work and effort of a great Costa Rican company with 50 employees. They put all their energy in a work known as the greatest construction effort in history.
Meco, a Costa Rican construction company, employed 50 domestic engineers, mechanics and skilled workers to work on the Panama Canal. They were in charge of:
-The Canal, 4-kilometer-excavation, new course.
-The construction of four dams that support vessels.
-Cleaning of 190 hectares surrounding the Canal.
This expansion project was approximately 5,250 million dollars, of which the company Meco and its team charged 436 million dollars.
José Alfredo Sánchez, Veco deputy president, said it is clear Costa Rica has human talent and quality workforce. The country can get many benefits from the Panama Canal expansion.
