Mega Container Ship Blocks Suez Canal After Grounding Sideways, Blocks Traffic From Both Direction

One of the Biggest Container Ship – MV Ever Given which grounded inside the suez canal has blocked both way traffic affecting the operation of the Suez canal. The grounding happened north of the port of Suez early on 23 March 2021, Tuesday.
Authorities are worried that due to its awkward position post grounding and the sheer size of the ship, it will be difficult for the deployed tugs to move the ship from the way of the daily traffic which will affect the operations of hundreds of ships.

As per the reports the ship was crossing the canal under the northbound convoy when the incident happened. No other ship was involved in any other kind of incident, however, dozens of ship which were behind the MV Ever Given are now stuck and anchored for clearing of the canal.  The Southbound Convey is also stuck as there is no room for any ship to cross this point.
MV EverGiven Was the biggest ship when it was launched in 2018 which is currently sailing under the Panama flag. It’s carrying capacity is 20000 TEU with a length overall (LOA) – 399.94 meters and her width is 59 meters.

A new study shows that global ship traffic has increased four-fold over the past 20 years, likely causing more water, air and noise pollution on the open seas.

The MV Ever Given is the largest vessel ever to go grounded in the Suez canal ever, making it tougher for the authorities to clear it from the site. If the tugs are not able to pull the ship out of its current position, they might need to unload the cargo to make it lighter.
As per the latest report, the Vessel lost power which led to the loss of navigation power ultimately grounding the ship.

  1. you have not posted even correct picture of the vessel then how can your resources of power failure is true.

  2. Dear sirs
    They can connect air balloons on each side of the vessel from its bottom line until the water line it will lift the vessel from being graining.
    I can help them doing it fast and workable !!!
    No need to offload the vessel
    And without making any dammage to the vessel structure.
