Project Description

Non-stop transit via Isthmos can be arranged at a short notice.

You may find specifications on the core structure of the Canal as here below:

The bearing of the Canal is 131,5 degrees, or 311,5 degrees and it intersects the Isthmus of Corinth, forming a straight line through it. It cuts through the uneven landmass of the Isthmus, which reaches a maximum height of 79 meters above sea level. The total length of Canal amounts to 6.343 meters, 540 meters of which are taken up by the ports of Poseidonia and lsthmia at either mouth of the Canal. The measurement of the Canal is located on the Canal’s axis, from a point fixed at 83 metres from the Poseidonia jetty, ending at a point on the axis fixed at 40 meters off the Isthmia jetty.

The maximum width of the Canal that is safe for navigation is 24.60 meters at Sea level and at mean low water level, and 21.00 metres on the bottom.

The depth of the Canal on the axis is 8.00 meters from mean Low water level.

The maximum air-draft of the Canal is limited to 52m because of the rail and road bridges.
