“Again we have to remember the incident with Ever Given”: Container ship ran aground again in the Suez Canal

49

The Egyptian operator of the Suez Canal has reported a new incident with a container ship. Recall that some time ago a 400-meter container ship Ever Given ran aground in the canal, causing a real panic in the world. The panic was associated with the multibillion-dollar losses that the global economy suffered because of the blocked Suez Canal. Egypt demanded from the owners of the ship (and this is a Japanese company) compensation of $ 1 billion.


Now the Suez Canal was temporarily partially blocked by the Maersk Emerald container ship. It is a 366-meter vessel owned by a Singapore-based company.

According to the latest reports, a huge container ship ran aground in the northern part of the canal the day before, causing significant difficulties in traffic through the waterway. Reportedly, with the help of several Maersk Emerald tugs with a capacity of 13 thousand 20-foot containers, it was eventually recovered. The operation lasted for several hours, after which the navigation through the Suez Canal continued.

According to reports from the Egyptian side, the incident was caused by problems with the power plants on board the container ship. An engine malfunction has been identified.

The Egyptian canal operator said that the damage in this case was small, as the incident occurred "in a relatively wide section of the new Suez Canal."

At the moment, the Singapore container ship has been towed to the area of ​​Bolshoy Gorky Lake pending troubleshooting.

Statement by the press service of the Suez Canal operator:

All crew members of the container ship are safe. The vessel was sailing southward under the Singapore flag. It was built in 2012.

Channel head Osama Rabia:

Despite the fact that the capacity of the canal was quickly restored, we again have to remember the incident with another container ship - Ever Given, which closed the navigation through the canal for about a week. Then it led to global failures.

In Egypt, they are looking for solutions to the problem so as not to face similar situations in the future. Several options are being considered: from deepening the canal to prohibiting its passage by vessels of excessively large displacement and the same linear dimensions.

          Well, it is clear that in the future the carrying capacity (and length) of ships will only increase.
          It is necessary to implement BOTH options - first, prohibit the passage of too large vessels, then remove all the shoals. Then you can return to normal work.

        I forgot about the frost and the inability of the vast majority of ships to endure this very frost.

        Maersk is already transshipping goods onto the railway and dragging containers through Russia.
        Cheaper, faster. Safe and secure.

        Increase the capacity of the railway and there will be containers in the ports.

        In general, not a single Egyptian ...

          Ice-class dry cargo ships and tankers should be built and services for traffic through the NSR should be provided. By the way, ordinary ships seem to go along it.

            At a minimum, the vessel must be insulated on all sides, plus heating of the premises.

                Corporal, what's not clear?
                The ship is a piece of iron, isn't it?
                And there the waters are cold, close to zero.
                All our ships that are used in the northern latitudes are insulated, both civil and military.
                It looks like this - from the inside, studs are welded onto the body, then mats with thermal insulation, such as ursa, are mounted on these studs, special clamps are mounted on the studs, such as press the mat to the board ...
                Of course, there are other technologies as well, such as polyurethane foam.
                But this option is fire hazardous, toxic, subject to destruction from accidental ingress of corrosive liquids.
                It is mainly used by rams for private yachts.
                Unbalanced room microclimate, insufficient room insulation
                from external noise and cold puts an end to the possibility of using the vessel in northern latitudes.

                Modern cargo ships have a double-hulled structure inside which ballast tanks are located, on the NSR these tanks need to be heated and insulated, in addition, there are the same problems with the infrastructure of pipelines against the background of these problems, the rest are not so significant.

          Yes, I also met this information the other day. yes The time of delivery of goods by Russian Railways from China to Europe from 35-45 days, is reduced to 25-35, which is very significant.
          Somehow, just in time, our railway troops were involved in expanding the railway section of the BAM. Apparently in connection with these Suez "plugging problems", the freight traffic of the highway will soon be seriously increased due to the transshipment of transit cargo through the territory of Russia.

      Egypt has no funds to upgrade the canal. and so they ate ate ends meet do not make ends meet.
      the loan is probably afraid to take because it is not a fact that they will be able to return it.
      again you will have to carry out nationalization, the second time may not work.

    The pursuit of profit "inflated" the size of the ships to the maximum allowable for passage. It became obvious that the restrictions are too "free", the nuts will be tightened, but what to do with the ships that will fall under the restrictions?

    In Egypt, they are looking for solutions to the problem so as not to face similar situations in the future.

    Divide the channel into several sectors, which will be assigned to a couple of powerful tugs, so that, for example, in the event of an emergency, they can quickly reach the problem ship in their sector. Organize a dispatch service to manage a fleet of tugs. Instruct the captains of the ships that, if a malfunction is suspected, they are obliged to inform the dispatchers that they would organize a safety net for the tugs in case of engine failure or control problems ...
    all business then lol
    Well, this is as one of the options for solving the problem, because bans on the passage of large-sized ships will reduce revenues to the budget of Yagipt and create preconditions for shipowners to doubt the ability of the Arabs to manage the canal what

    The Egyptians are certainly not the sharpest pencils in the box, but are you really holding them for fools?
    do you think there are no tugs and dispatchers, all sailing by themselves?

    The most interesting thing is that all of a sudden it was only now that they realized it. It is clear that it is easier to collect money for a passage than to think about the safety of this passage and spend money on it.
