The Panamanian flag ship Ever Given has been “partially refloated” this Monday after six days beached in the Suez Canal, which caused the suspension of one of the most important maritime crossings in the world, although it is not clear when it will reopen, reported firms that offer logistics services in channels and straits.
“Ever Given has been partially refloated in the Suez Canal,” said the firm Leth Agencies when publishing a satellite photo of the giant container ship that showed that the stern of the boat had moved, an information also published by the firm Inchcape, which added that the ship “is being insured”, without giving further details.
For its part, the Suez Canal Authority announced in a statement posted on its Facebook account that at dawn this Monday they had started “the drag maneuvers to refloat the container ship “with the work of a dozen tugboats operating from four different directions.
