Traffic on the Suez Canal, which was blocked for a week after the container ship "Ever Given" ran aground, has been restored
Al-Sisi said that the Egyptians managed to end the crisis in the Suez Canal, despite the complexity of this process.
“The whole world can have confidence in the path of its goods through this axial navigation artery,” he wrote.
At the points where the container ship Ever Given ran aground in the Suez Canal, with the help of two dredgers, deepening works are underway
for a draft of 12-16 meters, which will allow the Ever Given to move to the correct navigable position, at least 15,000 - 20,000 cubic meters of soil must be removed.
The dredgers are assisted by four ground excavators, which look dwarf next to the huge ship.
The Panama-flagged container ship Ever Given ran aground and blocked traffic in the Suez Canal in Egypt
The vessel 400 m long and 59 m wide was sailing under the Panama flag to the Dutch port of Rotterdam from China.
Its bow and stern were stuck on both sides of the waterway, blocking the path of dozens of other ships on one of the world's most important shipping routes.
Several tugs surrounded the ship in an attempt to move it. However, there are concerns that this process may take several days.
