Dockwise Vanguard to Transport Costa Concordia Wreck?

Dockwise Vanguard may be the solution for the transportation of Costa Concordia wreck to the scrapyard, since the owner of the cruise ship Carnival Cruises commissioned the transport ship, the Italian media reported.

Dockwise Vanguard is a semi-submersible heavy transport vessel (SSHTV) and currently the largest of its kind. The vessel is built by Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in Ulsan for the Dutch shipping company Dockwise, owned by Boskalis.

The refloating of the Costa Concordia wreck is the last phase of the salvage operation and it would probably happen in the spring.
