“The Suez Canal Authority is currently trying to pick up the dropped containers from the eastern channel and both vessels will be moored at the canal lakes until the required investigations, paper work and maintenance have been completed.”
There were no reports of injuries or pollution. The press officer of Maersk Line, Michael Storgaard, said:
"There is no pollution. Unfortunately, perhaps smoked a couple of containers overboard. Both ships are seaworthy, and as it looks now, the most cosmetic damage."
