Concordia Removal: 80 Pct of Sponson Installation Done

 Over 370 Titan Micoperi technicians are working restlessly on the installation of sponsons, prior to refloating phase of the Concordia wreck, the Parbuckling Project Team informed.

80 Pct of Sponson Installation Done

Currently, 14 sponsons have been installed on the starboard side of the Concordia and, if weather conditions will allow, today the last sponson will be positioned on this side (S1) to reach the total of 15.

Operations will then continue on the sea side, to install the last missing 4th sponson (11 had already been installed before the parbuckling).

The Italian Government has delayed the date of the final decision on refloating and removal of the Concordia wreck for June 26th so as to look into the plan’s details once more.

The additional time would be used for revision of risk assessments and proposed mitigation measures. The previous plans envisaged refloating of the hulk on July 20, followed by its towage  to Genoa, where the wreck would be dismantled. The delaying of the final decision might push the refloating schedule.
