Megaship Ever Given passes back through the Suez Canal without any issues

The shipping container that blocked the Suez Canal earlier this year and stopped £42billion of world trade has sailed back through without any issues. 

Ever Given got lodged in the Egyptian canal on March 23 and caused a six-day rescue operation that ended in one person’s death, a sunk rescue boat and 48 ships having to find alternative routes. 

Hundreds of ships were delayed as they waited for the canal to be unblocked and some vessels were forced to take the much longer route around the southern tip of Africa.

The Suez Canal Authority has announced that the ship has now successfully made its passage back through among other vessels coming from the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea.

The Ever Given blocked the major shipping lane in Egypt for nearly a week earlier this year. Under original plans the 400m-long ship was due to arrive at the Port of Felixstowe in Suffolk in early April. Pictured: The Ever Given when it was stuck in the Suez Canal on March 28, 2021

It had been offloading its 18,300 cargo containers to Rotterdam, Felixstowe and Hamburg and is now on its way to China after being impounded for three months while its owners organised a compensation deal with Egypt. 

The 1,312-foot ship, which carries cargo between Asia and Europe, was held in Ismalia for more than three months amid a financial dispute over compensation.

After an agreement was met between the ship’s Japanese owner, Shoei Kisen Kaisha Ltd, and canal authorities it was freed to continue its voyage in July. 

While the terms of the agreement weren’t released, Egypt settled on a £397million demand.

The Panama-flagged vessel was heading for Rotterdam when it ploughed into the sandy bank of a single-lane stretch of the canal about 3.7 miles north of the southern entrance, near the city of Suez on March 23. 

A massive salvage effort freed the skyscraper-sized vessel six days later, allowing a traffic jam of hundreds of waiting ships to pass through the canal.

‘It was a great relief to see her and a special moment,’ said Hans Nagtegaal, the Rotterdam port’s director of containers, of Ever Given’s arrival.

‘Finally we can get the job done offloading and hopefully get her back to a normal sailing routine,’ he said.
