Freighters in the Suez Canal: 320 ships are stuck in the Suez Canal


It is day six of the salvage work and the container ship Ever Given is still stuck in the Suez Canal. The 400 meter long freighter ran aground there on Tuesday. The transverse Ever Given has since made it impossible for other merchant ships to pass through. In the meantime, around 320 freighters have accumulated on both sides of the canal entrances.

The Dutch salvage company Smit Savage hopes to be able to mobilize the aground container ship at the beginning of the week, writes “Focus”. Should it be necessary to reduce the weight of the freighter, containers would have to be removed first. This in turn would further delay the recovery of the ship, says Peter Berdowski, head of the parent company of Smit Savage, on Dutch television on Friday evening.
