Egyptian Court Lifts Suez Canal Detention Order on ‘Ever Given’ Ship
By Staff, Agencies
An Egyptian court has lifted the detention order on the Ever Given container ship allowing for its expected release from the Suez Canal on Wednesday, a lawyer and judicial sources said.
The owners and insurers of the Ever Given announced on Sunday that they had reached a settlement with the Suez Canal Authority over compensation for the ship becoming grounded in March and blocking traffic in the waterway.
More than 400 vessels were stranded in the Mediterranean and the Red Sea when the giant container ship Ever Given became wedged across the vital waterway on 23 March.
International supply chains were thrown into disarray when the 400-meter Ever Given ran aground. Specialist rescue teams took almost a week to free it after extensive dredging and repeated tugging operations.
