After more then a day pulling , the Costa Concordia is back in upright position again. What now remains is to get her floating again and make her safe for towage or shipment to the nearest scrapyard!

The latest Semisubmersible Dockwise transport vessel “Vanguard” could load the whole wreck and ship it efficiently to any scrapyard in the world.

Costa Concordia: Operation to salvage stricken ship begins

Published on 16 Sep 2013

Salvage experts have begun trying to right the crippled Costa Concordia, nearly two years after it capsized off the Tuscany coast. The ship capsized in shallow waters 20 months ago after crashing into some rocks, killing 32 people.

Project manager for Italian salvage firm Micoperi, Sergio Girotto, said: “Visually it will take some time before you’ll see a difference but nonetheless the operation has started and everything is going well.” Report by Anna Collinson.
