Costa Concordia Removal Delayed Until Late Summer


Costa Crociere and its contractors now say the Costa Concordia won’t be removed from the coast of Giglio, Italy, until late summer. Previous estimates were that the hull would be refloated and moved by March or April. Costa and Titan-Micoperi, the consortium hired to remove the hull, gave the latest estimate at a Dec. 31 meeting to update Giglio residents.

Once floated, the wreck will be towed to an Italian port. Progress on the removal and a summary of the meeting can be found on a special website the companies have created.

Thirty-two people died after the ship ran aground and capsized on Jan. 13, 2012. The Italian line said the removal process requires constant testing to make sure the hull remains in one piece and does not damage the environment.
