During the work in the Suez Canal, further measures to rescue the wedged container ship are now being considered. President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi has ordered the preparations for the unloading of containers to begin, said the head of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA), Osama Rabie, on Sunday the broadcaster Extra News. The salvage experts had originally hoped to get the 400 meter long “Ever Given” back on the road without the time-consuming step.
The “Ever Given” with 18,300 containers on board has been blocking the Suez Canal, one of the most important waterways in the world, since Tuesday. As of Saturday, more than 320 ships were stowed at both ends of the canal. The accident disrupted supply chains around the world.
