CASUALTY UPDATE – EVER GIVEN – set for release

Further to our initial advice and subsequent updates, shipowners have confirmed that, following further discussions with SCA’s negotiating committee, a solution to release the vessel has now been formally agreed. The vessel and cargo are due to depart Great Bitter Lakes on Wednesday of this week, following which an Underwater survey will be carried out by Class.

It is reported that EVER GIVEN will then set sail for Rotterdam, where she is expected to arrive in about ten days, and then on to other ports of destination, including Felixstowe.
