The container ship Ever Given, which ran aground in the Suez Canal and caused maritime traffic to stop for 6 days, completed its voyage preparations at the Port of Ismailia and anchored to the Port of Rotterdam.
The ship Ever Given, which was kept in Mur Lake at the exit of the Suez Canal for more than 3 months, was brought to the Port of Ismailia after the agreement on compensation and left Egyptian territorial waters after the necessary preparations were completed there.
According to information received from local sources, it was noted that the ship’s route was the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
The Suez Canal Authority announced on July 7 that it had agreed on compensation with the London-based law firm “Stan Marine”, which represents the shipowner firm.
It was stated that the Suez Canal Administration agreed with the ship owner company on $540 million in compensation.
The container ship Ever Given crashed into the shore in the Suez Canal on March 24, when visibility decreased due to sandstorms and bad weather conditions.
As the ship got stuck in the canal and blocked the passageway, long ship queues formed on both sides of the canal and there were disruptions in the shipment of crude oil, LNG (liquefied natural gas) and many products due to the cessation of sea traffic.
The Suez Canal Administration announced that after 6 days of work, on March 29, the efforts to float the giant ship had been successfully completed and the canal was opened to maritime traffic.
