Towing operations for the transfer of the Costa Concordia from the Port of Pra’ to the ship repairing area in the Port of Genoa have been completed successfully. The wreck is now safely moored in the ex Superbacino area.
In the coming days, the Ship Recycling team will start organizing the yard to follow up with phase 2 of the project: stripping operations to remove interior structures and the dismantling of the external structures from deck 14 to deck 2.
Phase 1 of the Concordia dismantling and recycling project was completed with removal of over 5,700 tons of materials (furniture and internal structures) from the ship in order to obtain the necessary draft to transfer the wreck from the breakwater of the Prà Voltri Port to the Port of Genoa Ex Superbacino area.
Costa Concordia was wrecked off the coast of Isola del Giglio in Italy on 13 January 2012, when it struck a rock in the Tyrrhenian Sea just off the eastern shore of Isola del Giglio, on the western coast of Italy
