The UK P&I Club has announced that a formal solution has been agreed with the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) to settle their dispute over compensation.
The SCA had initially asked for $916m, including $300m for a salvage bonus and $300m for loss of reputation, which was rejected by the UK Club, who described it as extraordinarily large and unsupported.
It then lowed what it asked for down to $550m, however the owners and insurers reportedly offered to pay $150m.
The estimated value of the goods inside the Ever Given’s 18,000 containers had been totalled to $775m.
The containers included products for large multinational companies as well as those for smaller businesses.
The SCA stated that the ship would be able to leave on Wednesday, where an event will be held for participants to watch it leave the canal.
