The insurer of containership Ever Given said an agreement in principle has been reached to release the ship from the Suez Canal from where Afloat adds, became blocked in March but was eventually freed in a major salvage effort.

As LloydLoadingList reports, the UK P&I Club said the deal followed extensive discussions with the Suez Canal Authority’s negotiating committee in recent weeks.

“Together with the owner and the ship’s other insurers we are now working with the SCA to finalise a signed settlement agreement as soon as possible,” the club said.

“Once the formalities have been dealt with, arrangements for the release of the vessel will be made.”

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
