……….refloated in desperate attempt to salvage crashed vesselBy
The stricken cruise liner Costa Concordia is to be rightened and refloated in what will be the biggest operation of its kind ever seen.
Teams of engineers will work around the clock seven days a week for a year in the process which is expected to start in May, four months after the liner struck rocks and capsized leaving 32 people dead, with two bodies still unaccounted for.
Ten of the world’s leading salvage companies were contacted in February by operators Costa Cruises and six working plans were received by the deadline earlier this month – with three of the companies deciding not to bid while two have joined forces.
