Suez canal ship freed and heading to lake for inspections

Guardian, 29 Mar 2021
A vast container ship that had blocked the Suez canal in Egypt for almost a week has been completely refloated by salvage teams with the help of tides that swelled to their highest point with the full moon. Dredgers and excavators worked throughout the weekend to dislodge thousands of cubic metres of sand caked around the 400-metre-long Ever Given ship. Tugboats managed in the early hours of Monday first to move it, then pull it free. The vessel is being hauled to a lake where it will undergo technical inspections
