Salvors Confirm: Costa Concordia Upright by Early September

Engineers from the joint venture hired to refloat the cruise ship updated the mayor and residents of the island of Giglio on June 25.

Titan-Micoperi, the joint venture of two companies hired to refloat the stranded cruise ship Costa Concordia, posted an update that says they intend to turn the ship upright by early September. The news release says officials updated the mayor and residents of the island of Giglio on June 25 with this information.

What will be completed by then is the parbuckling, which uprights the ship so it rests on six giant platforms that have been anchored to the granite sea floor to support the ship. This event finally will expose the inaccessible starboard side of the ship that is now underwater. Fifteen caissons, called sponsons, then must be attached to the starboard side to match the 15 on the port side, so the ship can be refloated.

The sixth and final underwater platform is being positioned this week, according to the release.
