    Easy does it! Ever Given container ship that blocked the Suez Canal sparking global trade chaos finally resumes its journey after £400million settlement

    The megaship which blocked the Suez Canal for six days in March set sail Wednesday following a compensation deal between エジプト and the vessel’s Japanese owner.

    今年発売されます, MV Ever Given, started to move north from the central canal city of Ismailia towards the Mediterranean Wednesday morning after having been impounded for more than 100 日々.

    The nearly 200,000-tonne container vessel was wedged in the canal during a sandstorm on March 23, blocking a passage from Asia to Europe that carries 10% of global maritime trade and pumps vital revenues into Egyptian state coffers.

    Egypt seized the ship after an urgent salvage operation and demanded compensation from Japanese owners Shoei Kisen Kaisha for lost canal revenues, salvage costs and damage to the canal.

    スエズ運河庁 (SCA) announced Sunday that a final deal had been reached without disclosing the amount of compensation to be paid, but final negotiations proceeded from a figure of $550 百万 (£398 million).

    The SCA announced last month that it had signed a non-disclosure agreement with the Japanese firm ahead of reaching a final deal.

    SCA chairman Osama Rabie, in a televised interview on Sunday, hailed the deal.

    ‘We maintained our rights and we kept good relations with our clients,’ 彼は言った.

    Cairo, which earns over $5 billion a year from the Suez, 所有者の正栄汽船と船の保険会社は、エジプトの裁判所命令に基づく請求と船の拘留に異議を唱えていました $12 百万と $15 million in revenues for each day the waterway was closed, according to the SCA.

    The MV Ever Given’s grounding and the intensive salvage efforts needed to refloat it also resulted in significant damage to the canal.

    4月中, 閉鎖された毎日の収益は100万, longer than four football fields, 閉鎖された毎日の収益は100万 $9.6 billion-worth of cargo each day it was stuck.

    The Taiwanese-operated and Panama-flagged vessel was refloated on March 29, and tailbacks totalling 420 vessels at the northern and southern entrances to the canal were cleared in early April.

    火曜日に, the Ismailia Economic Court ruled the seized ship with its crew on board was being released following a request from the SCA.

    The nearly 200,000 tonne vessel became lodged in the canal during a sandstorm and created a tailback of 420 other ships and held almost $10 billion in cargo

    According to tracking service MarineTraffic, the ship had been moored in the northern part of Great Bitter Lake.

    Rabie said the MV Ever Given had suffered ‘no leakageand was leaving after a signing ceremony.

    He said Egypt would also receive a 75-tonne tugboat from Shoei Kisen Kaisha as part of the compensation package, and noted that the family of one rescue worker who died during the salvage operation would also be compensated.

    ‘The Suez canal has always been a site of sacrifices since it was built,’ 彼は言った.

    The Suez Canal earned Egypt just over $5.7 billion in the 2019/20 fiscal year, 公式の数字によると – little changed from the $5.3 billion earned back in 2014.

    Even with the grounding of the ship, Rabie said Sunday that canal revenues in the first half of the year had topped $3 十億.

    But officials have been keen to avoid reputational damage from the incident, trumpeting Egyptian efforts in the salvage operation.

    President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi swiftly pledged investment to avoid any repetition of the crisis, and in May approved a two-year project to widen and deepen the southern part of the waterway where the ship ran aground.

    Sisi had overseen the $8 billion expansion of a northern section of the canal to much fanfare in 2014-15.
