The Suez Canal Authority said that a container ship broke down in the canal on Friday, but it was towed and the malfunction repaired without any impact on navigation.
The authority and sources in the channel said that the 353-meter-long Maersk Emerald ship suffered a sudden engine failure near Ismailia while it was passing south, but was towed to a waiting area for technical checks.
During the accident, some ships were diverted to a second lane that was constructed in the process of expanding part of the canal that was completed in 2015, according to the authority’s statement.
Leith Shipping Agencies stated that navigation in the canal was normal after the vessel was towed.
Another container ship, Evergiven, ran for six days in March with the width of the southern part of the canal, which resulted in disruption of navigation in both directions and disruption of global trade traffic.
