Confirming the Ever Given’s re-floating at around 3 pm local time yesterday, BSM expressed its deepest gratitude to all parties involved in the emergency response, including the Suez Canal Authority, SMIT Salvage, and the crew on board.

“A crew of 25 Indian nationals remain aboard the vessel. They are safe, in good health, and have been working closely with all parties involved to re-float the vessel. Their hard work and tireless professionalism are greatly appreciated,” the media statement said.
