Evergreen Ever Forward

Evergreen Update

March 16, 2022

Dear Subscriber,


A message from Maryland Port Administration Executive Director William P. Doyle:

As you are aware,  the Evergreen Ever Forward ran aground on Sunday evening, March 13, 2022.  Technical experts have been onboard and have been surveying the vessel since Monday.  A salvage team, naval architects and divers are working to determine the best course of action to free the ship.  The U.S. Coast Guard is overseeing and coordinating federal, state, and local resources.  The ship's location is just off Gibson Island near the Craighill channel in the Chesapeake Bay.   There have been no injuries or pollution-related spills.  The ship’s grounding has not prevented other ships from transiting into or out of the Port of Baltimore.   Business and commerce-related activities at the Port of Baltimore continue as normal.

We appreciate the efforts of the Coast Guard and all of our partners who are working very hard to free the ship as quickly and safely as possible.   We will keep you updated as the situation progresses.   Thank you.
