Vessel ‘Dali’ Cleared From Baltimore Port Wreckage

The port of Baltimore’s recovery was boosted this week when the containership ‘Dali’ was refloated and moved away from the wreckage of the Francis Scott Key Bridge.

Five tugboats moved the stricken ship to a nearby terminal “under favourable environmental conditions” according to the US Army Corps of Engineers, clearing the way for larger containerships to travel up and down the Patapsco River.

The 2.5 mile journey took the heavily damaged ship to a temporary location, ahead of a planned move to the port of Norfolk in 4/6 weeks for repair. Debris and roadway from the bridge was clearly visible on the

The move has created a 400ft wide shipping channel in the river, although further clear up work is needed before the full width of 700ft is restored.

We are now expecting to see the port of Baltimore returning to carrier sailing schedules in the near future.
