Govt Extends Costa Concordia Transportation and Dismantling Evaluation Deadline

The Costa Concordia sponson installation marked its 12 sponsons installed, and the Government has set the June 26th as the deadline for the evaluation of the transportation and dismantling project.

The Italian Council of Ministers, upon proposal from the Commissioner for the Concordia Emergency, has identified June 26th (instead of June 16th as previously decided) as the date for the conclusion of the decision-making meeting of the “Conferenza dei Servizi”, the committee composed of representatives of all competent authorities that will evaluate projects for the transportation of the Concordia wreck to an appropriate port for dismantling.

In the meantine at Giglio Island over 370 technicians are working 24/7 to complete the sponsons installation phase. Currently 12 sponsons have been positioned on the starboard side of the Concordia, 3 more are left to install on this side and 4 on the port side to reach the total of 30 needed for the refloating phase.

In parallel to engineering operations, environmental monitoring is also in progress.
