Suez Canal ship MOVES: EverGiven nudges for first time in FIVE days

He added that the company aims to harness the power of the tugs, dredging and tides, which he said are expected to be up to 50cm higher on Saturday. 

Mr Berdowski said: “The combination of the [tug] boats we will have there, more ground dredged away and the high tide, we hope that will be enough to get the ship free somewhere early next week.”

If that plan fails, the company will remove hundreds of containers from the ship’s front in an effort to render it lighter. 

That would make it possible to effectively lift the ship and make it much easier to pull to freedom, with Mr Berdowski adding a crane was already on its way to start the job.
