The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) signed a cooperation agreement with the Port of Lake Charles in Louisiana earlier this week, which aims to attract new customers from the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry to soon to be the expanded Canal.
Currently, LNG vessels cannot transit through the waterway due to their beam dimensions, which are too wide to fit the existing locks.
The agreement will promote cooperation in marketing activities, information exchange, market research, training and technology, among other initiatives that will benefit both the Canal and the Port of Lake Charles.
“How did you spend your summer vacation?” ROV pilot Buzz Scott asked an eighth grade science class at Blue Hill Consolidated School. “This is how I spent mine.”
Scott had served on the E/V Nautilus, a 64-meter research vessel stationed on the Mesoamerican Reef, alongside their teacher Nell Herrmann, exploring the ocean depths through the photos and data sent back on board by two remotely operated vehicles or ROVs. Herrmann’s role was to narrate for online audiences what the camera lens showed to viewers.
