CC | Curaçao born assists in freeing mammoth cargo ship blocking the Suez Canal

The ship, the quarter-mile-long Ever Given, was ultimately set free last Monday at around 3 p.m., according to shipping officials.

SUEZ CANAL – The mammoth cargo ship blocking the Suez Canal was wrenched from the shoreline and finally set free on Monday, raising hopes that one of the world’s most vital maritime routes would quickly rebound and limit the fallout of a disruption that had paralyzed billions of dollars in global trade.

Within hours, other ships awaiting transit through the 120-mile-long waterway that connects the Mediterranean and Red Seas waylaid for nearly a week, fired up their engines and began moving again.

Salvage teams, working on land and water for six days and nights, were ultimately assisted by forces more powerful than any machine rushed to the scene: the moon and the tides.

The ship, the quarter-mile-long Ever Given, was ultimately set free last Monday at around 3 p.m., according to shipping officials. Horns blared in celebration as images emerged on social media of the ship once again on the move.

The ship, the quarter-mile-long Ever Given, was ultimately set free last Monday at around 3 p.m., according to shipping officials.

One of the teams assisting in pulling off the vessel was headed by the Curaçao born Julius Martina.
