        路透社援引苏伊士运河管理局(Suez Canal Authority, SCA)主席乌萨马·拉比耶(Osama Rabie)接受当地记者采访时的话报道,埃及将就“长赐号”上周搁浅造成破坏并堵塞运河一事提出超十亿美金的赔偿要求。
 
        这笔赔偿金也可能包含“长赐号”的救援费用。在援助下,该船最终于3月29日脱浅上浮。
 
        但这笔赔偿金不包括船东遭受的损失。受“大堵船”影响,大批船东的船只能在航道上等待数日。
 
        因此,最终索赔金额仍不确定。
 
        “长赐号”船东,日本正荣汽船株式会社(Shoei Kisen Kaisha)可能会承担大部分损失费用,目前已申报与搁浅相关的共同海损。
 
        此时,该船仍停泊在埃及大苦湖地区等待技术检查。
 
        据路透社报道,埃及检察人员已登船检查船舶适航性,并与船长、船员进行了沟通,以确定搁浅的可能原因。这次检查也旨在确认此次事故中有无人为因素。(译者注:目前搁浅原因已初步查明,是船长的错误操作,加之当时不良的天气状况共同导致了“长赐号搁浅”。)
 
        根据拉比耶的说法,“长赐号”将继续停泊在大苦湖直至检查结束,但没有透露检查结束时间。
 
        该船悬挂巴拿马旗,巴拿马海事局(Panama Maritime Authority)也已介入调查。
 
        据透露,初步报告显示“长赐号”遭遇了机械故障,船舶操纵性受到影响。巴拿马海事局正在对该报告作进一步分析。
 
        然而,“长赐号”船东坚称该船在搁浅前未出现失电情况。
 
        相反,30节的强风、由沙尘暴引起的低能见度被认为是“长赐号”搁浅的可能原因。
 
        “长赐号”在通过苏伊士运河时船上有两名引航员。
 
        目前该事故还没有引发海洋污染或船员受伤,只造成了船舶结构损伤,仍有待确定。
 
        苏伊士运河管理局表示,目前运河通航已经恢复正常,将安排附近的等待船只通过。
 
        GAC埃及表示,过去四天里(3月29日—4月1日),312艘船舶已经通过运河。
 
        包括鹿特丹、汉堡、安特卫普、哥德堡在内的欧洲港口正在为此次“大堵船”事件造成的港口流量猛增做准备。

Report: Egypt to seek over $1 billion in compensation for Suez blockage
 
Egypt will ask for over $1 billion in compensation for damages caused by the grounding of Ever Given and the resulting blockage of the Suez Canal last week, Reuters reports citing Suez Canal Authority (SCA) Chairman Osama Rabie as saying to local reporters.
 
The compensation is also expected to cover the costs incurred for the massive salvage operation in the Suez Canal that finally managed to free the ill-fated container vessel on March 29.
 
The amount does not cover the losses suffered by numerous shipowners whose vessels ended up queuing in the waterway for days due to the logjam.
 
Therefore, the final bill for the incident is yet to be finalized.
 
The owner of the ship, Japanese shipping company Shoei Kisen Kaisha, which is expected to pay for the majority of the damages, has reportedly declared general average in connection with the grounding.
 
Meanwhile, the vessel remains anchored in the Bitter Lakes area where it is undergoing technical inspection.
 
Aside from the ship’s seaworthiness, Egyptian inspectors have also boarded the vessel to talk to its captain and the crew to determine the potential causes of the grounding, Reuters said. The investigation is looking into the potential role of a human error in the incident.
 
According to Rabie, Ever Given will remain in the lakes area until the investigations are complete, without specifying when could that be.
 
The Panama Maritime Authority, the ship’s flag country, has also launched an investigation into the accident.
 
As informed, Panama is examining preliminary reports that Ever Given suffered mechanical problems that affected its maneuverability.
 
However, the owner of the vessel insists that there had been no blackout resulting in loss of power prior to the ship’s grounding.
 
Instead, gusting winds of 30 knots and poor visibility due to a dust storm have been identified as the likely causes of the grounding.
 
The ship had two pilots on board during the transit.
 
The incident has not resulted in any marine pollution or injuries to the crew, only some structural damage to the ship, which is yet to be determined.
 
The canal authority said that transit through the waterway was returning back to normal, with arrangements in place to clear the backlog of waiting vessels.
 
Over the past four days (29 March-1 April), a total of 312 ships have transited, GAC Egypt said.
 
In the meantime, European container ports including Rotterdam, Hamburg, Antwerp, and Gothenburg are readying for a surge in container traffic resulting from the blockade.
