Pontoon Mak Reaches Genoa for S13 Sponson Repair

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

The S13 sponson suffered disequilibrium earlier this month and has been brought back in a horizontal position at the Costa Concordia wreck site.

The sponson collapsed after it lost balance due to the movement of internal water within the sponson.

It also caused a minor damage to the adjacent sponson S12, and the remediation on starboard sponson S12 is in progress on site at Giglio Island.

For the next few days the installation of starboard sponson S9 is planned.
