VIDEO: Underwater Glance at Refloated Concordia Wreck

Costa Concordia

One of the most challenging salvage projects in the history, both in terms of scope and budget, removal of Costa Concordia’s wreck from the Giglio Island, has sparked considerable attention from across the world.

 
Be it for the innovative approach or combination of technology and ingenuity, the project has been in the focus, especially over the past few days when the official refloating of the wreck started.

The wreck is now afloat, raised 22 meters off the false sea bed, and it has been towed for about 30 meters eastwards.

However, if you are wondering about the state of the vessel beneath the hull, check out the following footage captured by VideoRay Pro 4 Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) released yesterday:

VideoRay Pro 4 Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) played a crucial role in the underwater construction process necessary for the parbuckling, or righting the ship, and the refloating operation.

Several VideoRay ROVs observed every minute of diving, directing operations, and surveying and inspecting the wreck, working underwater 24/7. After two and a half years of near continuous use, the VideoRay ROVs recorded over 45,000 hours of footage during the salvage project.
