Nicaragua Canal – Largest civil earthmoving operation in history

MEC Mining was invited to assist with design work for the earthworks associated with the Nicaragua Canal Project. The canal is the largest civil earthmoving operation and biggest dredging venture in history and, requires excavation of approximately 5 billion cubic meters of material.

MEC’s scope of work included detailed designs, plans and presented key findings that enabled the client to optimise excavation, haulage, dumping and equipment selection. With the use of the latest mining software, MEC Mining was able to present the client with visual models of large scale earthmoving which is common in Australia’s mining industry.

The advice from MEC Mining cut through typical construction jargon, enabling the client to optimise their investment in engineering construction, management and machinery.
