Tanker Minerva Nike, which blocked the Suez Canal, was taken off the sandbank.
The interlocutor of the agency said that the tanker is already in motion, and the traffic through the channel will be resumed within half an hour.
It became known earlier on Tuesday, April 6, that a tanker flying the Greek flag ran aground in the Suez Canal. It was reported that the vessel almost completely blocked the channel.
Suez Canal was blocked on March 23. Specialists did not rule out that it would take a few weeks to release the Ever Given, but the vessel was taken off the shoal and towed to Big Bitter Lake on March 29. Navigation was resumed by the evening of the same day. On April 2, an investigation was opened into the cause of the incident. The head of the department, Usama Rabia, promised that it would not take long.
