There is no problem with its rudders and propellers. Once it refloats, it should be able to operate. We are continuing work to remove sediment as of now, with additional dredging tools," said Yukito Higaki, president of Shoei Kisen KK, which owns the ship. "We apologize for blocking the traffic and causing tremendous trouble and worry to many people, including the involved parties," he added.
