Google Earth Plug-in: Uprighted Costa Concordia

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


On 17 September 2013 the Costa Concordia was brought to a vertical position through a parbuckling procedure at the Island Giglio. The cost for salvaging the ship increased to $799 million.

In addition, the ship had suffered severe hull deformations in two places. Titan Salvage, the company directing the salvage operations, has estimated that the next phase of the salvage operation, which is the "floating" operation, should be completed by early summer, 2014, after which time the ship will be towed to a salvage yard on the Italian mainland for "breaking".

If you remove the timeslider you can see the ship before being righted up with all the connected equipment.
