The owner of the ship Evergiven files a lawsuit against its operator for delinquency in the Suez Canal
The owner of the tanker "Evergiven", which ran aground in the Suez Canal, filed a lawsuit against the company responsible for operating it, "Evergreen", for its delinquency in the Suez Canal.
On the other hand, Lieutenant General Osama Rabie, head of the Suez Canal Authority, said that the authority is studying the expansion of the shipping course, after the accident of stranding of the Panamanian vessel "Evergreen Giant", which led to blocking the passage for about 6 days.
Regarding the Suez Canal’s plans to develop the navigation corridor, Rabei said in a statement to the American “CNN” network, that a study is underway to expand the canal after the delinquent ship crisis, but he stressed that it does not need to increase its depth.
The head of the Suez Canal Authority indicated that the depth of the canal currently reaches 24 meters, equivalent to 66 feet.
Last Monday, the authority succeeded in resolving the crisis of the delinquent "Ever Giffen" ship in the Suez Canal, after the traffic was suspended in the shipping channel for a period of 6 days, which led to the disruption of hundreds of ships.
Earlier, two Suez Canal officials told the Italian "Nova" agency that the captain of the huge ship had made a wrong maneuver that coincided with the severe storms, which led to the ship's deviation severely before it ran aground in this way.
