For his part, Mikhail Voitenko, editor-in-chief of the Internet publication Marine Bulletin, recalled in an interview with Vzglyad that Ever Given is one of the world’s largest ships.
“It’s gigantic and fully loaded. The container ship, although it was not in full swing, but strong inertia stuck it into the bank of the channel in shallow water. This is the first time such a serious emergency of this kind has happened, ”the expert noted.
In his opinion, the incident will not lead to the expansion of the channel, and many ships have already gone around.
