Two years on, Costa Concordia is raised: Doomed cruise ship set to be refloated before being towed away and scrapped

 

The giant liner smashed into rocks off the picturesque holiday island of Giglio in January  2012 killing 32 people

Official says search will be conducted for the only unrecovered body - an Indian waiter who was never found

 

By Paul Donnelley and Matthew Blake
The doomed cruise ship Costa Concordia is to be refloated today in the largest maritime salvage operation in history, nearly two-and-a-half years after she ran aground off the Italian island of Giglio.


It will be the final phase of a salvage operation that will conclude with it being towed to the port of Genoa and broken up for scrap.


The 290-metre liner, which smashed into rocks off the picturesque holiday island in January  2012 with the loss of 32 lives, has for nine months been sitting deep in the water, resting on a specially-constructed platform made of steel girders and thousands of sacks of cement.

Tragedy

Tragedy: The 290-metre liner, which smashed into rocks off the picturesque holiday island in January 2012 with the loss of 32 lives

 

Still missing

Still missing: an Italian official has promised that a search will be conducted for the only unrecovered body of the 32 Costa Concordia shipwreck victims as soon as the wrecked cruise liner is towed away from the island

 

Scrap

Scrap: If all is well, it will be towed away from Giglio on July 21 to the port of Genoa 200 miles away and sold for scrap


But in an operation starting today, air will be pumped into the 30 giant box-like compartments that have been welded to its hull, forcing out seawater and raising the vessel by around 36ft.


Four decks of the ship will emerge from beneath the waves for the first time since the ship ran aground.
