Suez Canal Authority (SCA) Chairman Osama Rabie said Saturday that "XIANG RUI KOU" ship transited the waterway on Saturday.

The heavy load carrier, which carried Mohab Mamish Dredger, the most advanced and largest dredger in the Middle East, came from Port Said and headed to the lakes area in the canal, he added, pointing out that measures have been taken to float the dredger and separate it from the vessel.

He added that a joint working group from SCA and the Dutch IHC company started coordinating with the ship crew to float the dredger safely on Sunday.

Classified as the most powerful dredgers in the world, the Mohab Mamish cutter suction dredger has an overall length of 147.4 metres and a total installed cutter power of 4,800kW and can dredge to a depth of 35 metres.
