CAIRO : A newly arrived specialist tug will join efforts on Sunday night to float the giant container ship stranded in the Suez Canal, the ship’s technical manager Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) said in a statement.

“Further attempts to re-float the vessel will continue this evening once the tug is safely in position along with the 11 tugs already on site,” the statement said.

An additional dredger would arrive from Cyprus by March 30, it said.
