As a result of the jobs related to the removal of the pieces of TEFFE and ITAPEMA rocks (expected to last till September 28th), there will be the placing of 2 additional bouys nearby the area of TEFFE and ITAPEMA rocks. The narrow passage to be delimited by these 2 new bouys will have the width of approximately 130 meters. Aiming at safe navigation, during an initial stage of evaluation and familiarization of the sailors with the temporary new width of the canal, following restrictions will be in force:
- Tanker Ships and *Bulk carrier Ships (*in ballast condition) whenever under occasion of "FLOODING TIDE" (High tide) during a "moon tide period", will NOT be permitted to berth;
- Tanker Ships and *Bulk carrier Ships (*in ballast condition) whenever under occasion of "EBB TIDE" (Low tide) during a "moon tide period" (just on those of amplitude of minimum 0,90 cm. within an interval of time equal of lesser than 6 hours), will NOT be permitted to sail out.
