The specialized teams in the Suez Canal were able to change the course of the delinquent ship by 80 percent.
Lieutenant-General Osama Rabie, Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority, announced today that the delinquent Panamanian container ship “Ever Givin” has started to float successfully after the ship responded to the tension and towing maneuvers, where the ship’s course was significantly modified by 80% and the stern of the ship moved away from the shore by a distance of 102 meters instead of 4 meters.
The maneuvers are scheduled to resume again as the water level rises to its maximum height, allowing the ship’s course to be completely modified to the middle of the shipping course.
Lieutenant General Rabie sent – in a statement today – a message of reassurance to the international maritime community to resume navigation traffic in the canal once the vessel is fully floated soon and directed to wait in the Lakes region for its technical examination.
The Chairman of the Authority praised the men of the Suez Canal Authority who did this great work, appreciating their efforts during the last period and for carrying out their national duty to the fullest, with full confidence in the completion of the work by 100%.
It is reported that the tensile maneuvers to float the delinquent Panamanian container ship began early today with 10 gigantic tugs operating from four different directions.
