Ever Given still stuck, says Evergreen

[ March 25, 2021   //   ]

Evergreen Line says that as of 07:00 Egypt time 25 March, ground of the Ever Given in the Suez Canal had not been resolved, after 48 hours of proactive efforts to refloat her.

However, the shipowner confirms that the crew, ship and cargo are all safe, and no marine pollution has materialized. There had been no black out resulting in loss of power prior to the ship’s grounding.

The shipowner has appointed Smit Salvage and Nippon Salvage to work with the Captain and the Suez Canal Authority to design a more effective plan for refloating the vessel as soon as possible.

As the vessel is chartered, the responsibility for the expense incurred in the recovery operation; third party liability and the cost of repair (if any) is the owners’.
