Update: First Phase of Concordia Refloating Finalized

The first day of the refloating operation of the Concordia has concluded successfully yesterday.

Confirming technician’s estimations, the wreck is afloat thanks to the buoyancy given by sponsons, 22 meters off the false sea bed, and it has been towed for about 30 meters eastwards.

The wreck is securely moored and therefore the first phase of the refloating operations has ended.

Around and under the Concordia operations were carried out to connect some chains and cables to the sponsons.

Update:

1.00 pm : The underwater preliminary activities related to the beginning of the last phase of the refloating operation of the Concordia are in progress today.

Technicians are indeed working to connect and tension the last 4 chains and 6 cables. The wreck is stable position and securely moored.
