Book Published by Boskalis about the Salvage of the Ever Given

In March this year Boskalis was at the center of worldwide media attention on the salvage of the stranded mega container ship Ever Given in the Suez Canal. In collaboration with the Suez Canal Authority a large group of experts from Boskalis and its subsidiary SMIT Salvage succeeded in refloating the enormous vessel within a week during a spring tide and unblock the canal. This allowed the hundreds of queuing ships to continue their journey and averted a potential disaster for world trade (Lloyd's List estimated the damage at USD 400 million per hour).

At the time of the salvage operation and immediately afterwards, Boskalis received numerous questions from the media and interested parties about the progress of the salvage operation and what had happened behind the scenes. In response to these requests and because of the unique nature of this salvage operation, we decided to publish a book reporting on this intense week. Based on interviews with a large number of colleagues involved, combined with various photos, the book paints a chronological picture of what took place on board the stranded vessel with the salvage team, the shore support team in Egypt and the Boskalis offices.

The book is available in English and Dutch and can now be ordered from the Boskalis shop (shop.boskalis.com) or for domestic orders through Bol.com. The book will be shipped as of next week for EUR 9.95 plus shipping cost for international deliveries.
