CMA CGM vessel grounded in Suez Canal

The 9,200TEU CMA CGM Missouri has grounded in the Suez Canal. The 300m vessel has a draught of 14.4m left Port Said on 13 October and was due to arrive in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at 6am tomorrow morning.

According to reports the vessel, at around 1:50pm local time on 14 October, suffered a blackout while heading south transiting the Suez Canal in convoy, jamming the vessel’s rudder. The loss of control meant the vessel subsequently grounded on the canal bank, damaging the rudder further.

The grounding of CMA CGM Missouri caused the convoy, with the next vessel in line the Maersk Hanoi to come to a halt. No other ships were damaged in the incident

CMA CGM Missouri was then towed to Great Bitter Lake, a kind of marine lay-by that ships transiting the Suez Canal use for manoeuvring.
