The Ever Given, the massive container ship that became wedged in the Suez Canal and cut off traffic in the vital waterway for almost a week, has been refloated, authorities said Monday.

The ship is currently on its way to Great Bitter Lake, according to Leth Agencies, which is a transit agent at the Suez Canal. Once there, it will undergo a technical inspection, according to authorities.

Earlier on Monday the Suez Canal Authority said the ship had “responded to the pulling and towing maneuvers” and had corrected its course by 80%.
