The new figure is 600 million dollars!
The Suez Canal Authority stated that the new claim for compensation is 600 million dollars for the 400-meter-long ship, which was arrested by getting towed to the Great Bitter Lake after its rescue.
SShoei Kisen has applied the International Convention on Limitation of Liability on the Ever Given, whereby it will aim to cap claims to a maximum of $115m. Also, Shoei Kisen had requested that part of the requested compensation be covered by the owners of the containers on board.
$ 916 million had been claimed before!
The Suez Canal initially demanded $ 916 million in compensation due to the six-day blockage caused by the 400-meter-long giant ship that was going to the ports of call in Europe with 18,300 containers.
