It’s been over 2 years since the sinking of the Costa Concordia off the coast of Giglio, Italy. For those of you who, don’t remember, you can read all about the accident here.
So, how do you refloat a ship twice as big as the Titanic? Enter the Parbuckling Project. Just today, on their website, they announced the refloating and tow away from Giglio Island and it’s two and a half year resting place.
You can now follow the salvage operation directly through the project’s website (The Parbuckling Project. )
Just today, they released this information:
“Technicians are at work to complete refloating. During the night, despite the strong winds, the wreck has emerged of about 11 meters; there are therefore 3 more meters to reach the required draft. Starboard sponson S4 is almost in position. Work is in progress to lower sponsons S5 and S14.”
