Two months after the accident… the Baltimore Bridge accident ship was refloated

– Published on:

The container ship that caused the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, Maryland, in the United States, is scheduled to be refloated on Monday and moved to a nearby pier.

The Daly has remained at the site of the collapse since it struck one of the bridge’s support columns on March 26, killing six construction workers and disrupting traffic into the Port of Baltimore.

It is expected that the high tide on Monday will provide the best conditions for crews to begin the work of refloating and moving the ship, according to a statement issued by the Unified Response Command, CNN reports.

It is planned that up to 5 boats will accompany the ship “Dali” to the pier. The work is expected to last at least 21 hours.

Crews conducted a controlled demolition operation on May 13 to break the largest remaining span of the collapsed bridge.

The Daly ship suffered four power outages within about 10 hours before it left the port of Baltimore heading to Sri Lanka and collided with the bridge, according to a preliminary report issued by the National Transportation Safety Board in the United States.
