Costa Concordia Parbuckling Update
The installation of the sponsons for refloating are progressing quickly at Giglio Island.
With the installation of starboard sponson S18 (former S13 that had to be brought back for remediation to Genoa), the number of installed sponsons has reached 9 out of the total of 19 needed before refloating (15 on the starboard side, 4 on the port side to reach the total of 30).
Technicians from Titan Micoperi have now planned to continue with the installation of S14 in the next few days, upon receiving necessary permissions from the Observatory.
The current schedule foresees the completion of refloating and therefore removal of the wreck from Giglio Island by the end of July, after having obtained the necessary authorizations from competent authorities.
