The engineering and nonengineering challenges behind the salvaging of Costa Concordia
November 26, 2014 Editor 0
The story of the salvage of the Italian cruise liner Costa Concordia, which took place from May 2012 to July 2014 (the refloated ship was towed into Genoa harbour on July 27, and is now being scrapped) is well known in general outline, as is the fact that the Salvage Master for the operation was a South African, Captain Nick Sloan. The ship ran on to rocks just off Giglio Island, off the coast of Tuscany in North West Italy, on January 13, 2012. It rolled over on to its starboard (right) side, 32 people losing their lives (the body of the 32nd and last victim was only recovered from the wreck in August this year).
