The giant cargo vessel stranded in the Suez Canal for nearly a week was finally evacuated on Monday.
Captain Sanjay Prahar, a member of the National Shipping Board (NSB), said, ‘First of all, we have to find out how the giant ship was trapped. By checking and listening to the conversation in the ship’s data recorder, facts can be checked and one can understand what is causing the accident. ‘
Waterway open after cargo vessel stranded in Suez Canal
Billions of dollars were lost every day in maritime transport due to stranding of the vessel. Several ‘tugboats’ were used to evacuate the vessel called ‘Ever Given’ stuck on the sandy shore where it was stranded since 23 March. The ‘Boskalis’ company was enlisted to remove the vessel. Company CEO Peter Bardosky said,’ We took it out. I am happy to state that our team of experts, with the help of the Suez Canal Authority, has successfully managed to successfully bring the Ever Given back into the middle of the water. After this the traffic in the Suez Canal was restored.
The ship got stuck due to the jam
Lt. General Osama Rabei, the head of the Suez Canal Authority, said that traffic was restored at 6 pm local time in the canal. He said that first of all, ships carrying animals were allowed to go. Container-laden ships stuck on the coast of Suez City were seen moving into the Red Sea. Rabei said that by Tuesday morning, 113 of the 420 ships that had been stuck due to Anwar giveaways would be fired. Analysts believe that it may take 10 days to remove all the stopped vessels.
Explain that a huge container ship got stuck in the Suez Canal of Egypt. This container is considered to be one of the largest cargo container ships in the world.
