A huge Panama-flagged cargo ship ran aground on Tuesday, blocking a major shipping and merchant route. The teams try to relax the colossus with giant excavators and avoid its relief by unloading containers, which will take many days.
It is not yet clear whether the collision was caused by a strong gust of wind, poor visibility, technical damage or human damage. The ship is operated by the Taiwanese company Evergreen Marine, which said the cause of the incident was a strong wind.
On the day of the accident, the ship drew attention to itself with another remarkable maneuver. While waiting for the signal to enter the Suez Canal, he initially created a distinct pattern with seemingly pointless maneuvers. The captain drew a figure with a boat 400 meters long, which looks like a penis with testicles. He pointed out the erotic plan revealed by the simulation of the ship’s orbit Twitter the VesselFinder portal itself, which monitors the movement of ships.
A spokesman for the shipping company Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement, which manages Ever Given, told German magazine Der Spiegel that it was not uncommon for ships waiting to enter to “wander”. Asked why the virtual figure looks like a male genitalia, the spokesman noted that it was probably a “pure coincidence”.
However, sailors from Ever Given would not be the first authors of such forms. Occasionally, aircraft pilots make such sketches.
The Suez Canal connects the Mediterranean and the Red Sea, and last year nearly 19,000 ships passed through it, an average of more than 51 a day. The road is 193 km long and has been used since 1869. It guarantees the fastest connection between Asia and Europe by water, passing 12% of the volume of goods in the world.
