Costa Concordia Removal Planned by Fall 2013

The task of uprighting and refloating the stranded cruise ship involves about 400 workers and a seven-days-a-week schedule, the salvors reported Dec. 23.

Titan Salvage and Micoperi, the two companies hired to remove the Costa Concordia cruise ship from Giglio island’s rocks and tow it away to be scrapped, now report they expect to complete the job by the end of summer 2013.

The companies are posting regular reports at http://www.theparbucklingproject.com/news.php about the progress of the work, and representatives of both firms talked with “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl for a report on the job that was broadcast Dec. 21 and is available at http://www.titansalvage.com/News-and-Media/Press-Releases/Watch-as-60-Minutes-Goes-Inside-Costa-Concordia-Salvage-Effort.

A Dec. 23 report available in Italian at the project website says the end of summer completion target was shared at a meeting that day with residents of the island, and it depends on continued good weather at no other adverse circumstances, such as an environmental or safety emergency. Neither has happened so far, the companies reported, adding that constant environmental monitoring is being done and has detected no problems.
