Evergreen considering taking off the cargo
The transshipment of the thousands of containers stranded on the 'Ever Given', detained by the Suez Authority, are onto smaller vessels was now being considered in order to transport them to their final destinations as quickly as possible. The Evergreen Marine Corporation was currently thinking about sending empty container ships to the Bitter Lake, where the 'Ever Given' is detained, or letting ships on their way take containers from the vessel. "The possibility of moving containers to other ships and delivering them to customers in Europe is now on the table." The 'Ever Given' is loaded with about 18,000 TEU. The Egyptian authorities are demanding a compensation totaling 916 million Dllars. The ship, after thorough investigations, was approved for further sailing towards the destination in Rotterdam.
Ship is fit to sail if released
The 'Ever Given' is fit to sail once approval is given, its technical manager said on April 14. She was declared suitable for onward passage from the Great Bitter Lake to Port Said, where she would be assessed again before departing for Rotterdam, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) said in a statement. “The SCA’s decision to arrest the vessel is extremely disappointing. From the outset, BSM and the crew on board have cooperated fully with all authorities. BSM’s primary goal is a swift resolution to this matter that will allow the vessel and crew to depart the Suez Canal,” BSM chief executive Ian Beveridge said in the statement. The ship has been in the lake since being dislodged on March 29. The Suez Canal Authority (SCA) said on April 14 that negotiations aimed at reaching an agreement “may take some time”. It has made a $916 million compensation claim against the ship’s Japanese owner Shoei Kisen, UK Club, one of its insurers, said. The SCA has also obtained a court order to detain the ship as discussions over compensation continued. The Evergreen Line, which is the charterer, said separately on April 14 it was investigating the scope of the Egyptian court order “and studying the possibility of the vessel and the cargo on board being treated separately”. Panama’s Luster Maritime and Japan’s Higaki Sangyo Kaisha, the vessel’s registered owners, have started legal proceedings in London’s High Court to open a limitation fund that lawyers say will serve as a cash pool of around $115 million to satisfy valid English claims. The owner had offered $100 million in response to the Canal’s claim.
Schulte Shipmanagement disagrees with detention
The Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM), the technical managers of the 'Ever Given', disagreed with the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) decision to seize the vessel until its owners pay $900 million in damages. "The SCA's decision to arrest the vessel is extremely disappointing. From the outset, BSM and the crew onboard have cooperated fully with all authorities, including the SCA and their respective investigations into the grounding. This included granting access to the Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) and other materials and data requested by the SCA," BSM CEO Ian Beveridge announced in a statement. According to the statement, the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has conducted an extensive inspection of the vessel, including underwater inspections. Based on these inspections, the vessel has been declared suitable for onward passage to Port Said, where she will be assessed again before departing for Rotterdam, Netherlands. "However, BSM has been informed by the vessel's owner that the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) began arrest procedures against the vessel. Currently, the vessel remains anchored in Great Bitter Lake until an agreement between the SCA and the vessel's owner has been reached."News schreiben
