Dredgers Work At New Suez Canal

Dredgers are now in operation at the new canal in Suez, a senior official said on Tuesday 992014.

Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) Mohab Mamish was on location on Tuesday as the “Tariq bin Zeyad” and “10th of Ramadan” dredgers entered the new canal from the south.

“Salahuddin al-Ayyoubi” and “Mecca” are also operating in the canal.

Mamish also met with a delegation of Denmark’s Maersk Group for maritime transport to discuss the New Suez Canal.

Maersk vessels are among the largest ships crossing the Suez Canal periodically.

The SCA chairman asserted that the new canal will reduce the waiting time ships have to spend to cross the waterway.
