The Suez Canal resumes navigation
Updated: 2021-3-31
The giant freighter Ever Given, which had been stuck on the Suez Canal for six days, finally got off the ground on Monday and was towed to the Great Bitter Lake. Subsequently, the world's most important maritime artery resumed navigation. According to the authorities, it is expected that the canal will resume normal operation within a few days.

According to Bloomberg News, the chairman of the Suez Canal Authority, Osama Rabie, said at a press conference held on Monday night that it may take nearly three days for all queued ships to pass through the canal, and it is expected that the canal will return to normal operation within four days. 


EVERGREEN MARINE CORP, the operator of the vessel "EVER GIVEN", stated that the vessel will first move to an anchorage in the waters of the Great Bitter Lake for seaworthiness inspection. The subsequent voyage and cargo transportation will be subject to the inspection results of the survey agency, and necessary adjustments and arrangements will be made.


In addition, Osama Rabie, the chairman of the Suez Canal Authority, told reporters that after the 400-meter long-giving ship got out of trouble, it is expected that by early Tuesday morning, 113 ships will pass through the canal in both directions.


He said that there are currently 422 ships waiting in line to pass, and it may take three and a half days to clear these ships.
