Concordia Sponson Arrives for Repair in Genoa

Pontoon Mak has reached Genoa with the S13 sponson, where the sponson will be repaired, according to the Parbuckling project team.


In addition, remediation on starboard sponson S12 is in progress on site at Giglio island and the installation of starboard sponson S9 is upcoming in the next few days.

The S13 sponson, which was the first to had been installed on the Concordia wreck within its refloating plan, collapsed last week having lost balance due to the movement of internal water within the sponson.

The sponson has been damaged in the process.

Minor damages were also detected in the adjacent sponson (S12), caused by the sponson S13 during its rotation.
