Dislodging the Ever Given in Suez Canal could take ‘weeks’

Shipping experts believe it could take weeks to free a gigantic container vessel that was knocked off course and became wedged across the Suez Canal, one of the world’s busiest waterways.

On Thursday, the Suez Canal Authority temporarily suspended navigation in the international maritime passage as tug boats and diggers struggled to refloat the 224,000-ton vessel.

Salvage teams from the Netherlands and Japan have been hired to devise a plan to refloat the Ever Given, the company leasing the vessel said on Thursday.
