Traffic through the Suez Canal was again interrupted due to problems with the passage of the vessel

There are reports from Egypt that the traffic of ships and vessels on the Suez Canal was again interrupted. It is reported that the transport artery was again blocked by a ship that ran aground. According to other sources, the vessel had problems with the engines, which led to the next blockage of the channel.


Egyptian sources report that a tanker carrying oil ran into problems while passing through the Suez Canal.

According to some reports, we are talking about the tanker "Minerva".

After a while, according to the latest reports, the tanker launched the power plant and was able to continue moving.

This situation attracts special attention due to the fact that just a few days ago the Suez Canal was blocked by the container ship Ever Given, which ran aground. It took almost a week to "rescue" him. Now the administration of the Suez Canal intends to demand compensation for losses in the amount of about $ 400 billion from the owners of the 1-meter container ship. It was noted that every day the Egyptian treasury lost about $ 130 million due to the blocking of the channel.

        The oil tanker can be unloaded quickly. And there will be no claims for the return of oil, it seems like an industrial necessity for the restoration of shipping, and even the damage can be brought to court.

          Yes, they generally settled well there - they collect money from everyone regularly, but if something happened, it is impossible to blame the administration of the canal for what happened, since the decisions are ultimately made by the captain of the ship, and the pilots from the canal only advise. In any case, the administration of the Suez Canal does not may be responsible for incidents, since her laws and the Constantinople Convention (on ensuring free navigation on the Suez Canal from 1888) exempt her from responsibility.Shob I lived like that.

      in some article about Suez (in my opinion, in the news about the blocking), the existing disadvantages at the moment on the NSR were listed. In order for the NSR to work, it is necessary to invest enormous funds and only after 20-30 years (after the end of the work) the NSR will come to zero and start making a profit.

          Well, you are probably a great specialist in economics, since you have decided that there is a NSR and ships with oil and gas and lighters of half a million deadweight will go along it ...
          You considered how much the insurance of the vessel and cargo would cost (or did you decide to create an analogue of Lloyd's? Or do you think that RosGosStrakh will insure - so the RF budget will not be enough there), How much will it cost to operate at least

      The container ship Ever Given was following the Suez Canal north from China to Europe and was caught in stormy weather, causing it to run aground. At the moment, the company has no information on crew injuries and oil spills as a result of the incident.

      I don't know what was in the containers. But it could have been anything. Including components for European factories.
      And then the main question comes up on the agenda - who benefits from it (and the fact that this is a well-thought-out step with almost 100% probability)?
      Well, not Europeans, really?
      The Russian Federation does not have the spirit and capabilities for this.
      Who remains? Or China or the United States.
      The United States is the most likely customer for such a scheme.
      But China could also play on raising its rates. For the meeting in Alaska is a violation of the agreements between the PRC and the United States that China will support the petrodollar until the age of 25, and the Americans will not prevent China from starting the procedure for returning Taiwan.
      Why does China need Taiwan?
      He needs the production of those microcircuits (I don't remember what nanometers are there) that he cannot make himself, and the Americans blocked supplies from the United States.
      Just in case, China and the Russian Federation showed its place.
      The phytosanitary inspection of wheat and timber - round timber from the Russian Federation - has suddenly intensified.
      Well, a very contaminated forest in the Russian Federation.
      And Russian Railways in the border areas with China just stopped. Colom.
      China, being the # 1 economy, is showing its "modest" opportunities.
      Moreover, he solved the main issue - the diversification of oil supplies.
      Iran signed a $ 400 billion agreement with China for the supply of oil.
      A serious and dangerous time is coming - a time for change.
      And we managed to live here and now.

          This is how the super-powerful Polish fleet will be driven away from the barge in the Baltic Sea, so I will immediately believe in the capabilities of our fleet and the Russian Federation.
          In the meantime, I remain firmly convinced of the opposite.
          And the fact that the "spirit" is in the Kremlin is enchanting!

          The souls of our rulers, who lie in the land of the Kremlin, most likely do not really understand what the current leaders are doing.

          No, "automatic" is a CPP. Judging by the news, this is the Minerva Nike tanker, it looks like it has a fixed pitch propellant. And such a pusher starts up easily, the main thing is that the rpm from the oncoming flow is higher than the starting ones. More than once I observed this: no starting air, the rail moved at the command of the telegraph, and there were flashes. Mystic... what

    Do not find?

    No. It is optimal only if you need to deliver the cargo from point A (Vladivostok) to point B (the same Murmansk or some other European port). Then yes, the plus of the NSR will play a shorter distance, and a shorter travel time and lower fuel costs.
    But the southern option (via Suez) allows passing cargo to be delivered to a dozen other ports, taking other cargoes there. In addition, navigation through the Suez is year-round, and along the NSR - several months a year. As a result, it turns out that about 30-50 ships pass through the NSR per year (mainly with icebreaker escort and ice-class ships themselves. Through Suez - up to 17000 ships (seventeen thousand) per year. In addition, for example, the width of the same The container ship stuck in Suez was EMNIP of about 50-60 meters, and the existing types of our EMNIP icebreakers pierce a channel of 3 dozen meters. That is, such a container ship will have to be accompanied by at least 2 icebreakers.

    Of course, the NSR needs to be developed and, first of all, for oneself, invest a lot of money in infrastructure, but to believe that the NSR will replace Suez even in the long term is the height of stupidity
    Most likely, recent events will prompt Egypt to create a second branch of the channel. Moreover, 70 km out of 160 - already has two branches. This construction cost 8 billion of which half was spent on the creation of the second branch, and the rest on the development of related infrastructure
