Head of Costa Concordia salvage job says ship could break apart

Nick Sloane, who heads the operation to remove and salvage the Costa Concordia from her perch 300 metres off the coast of the Italian island of Giglio believes the project could turn out badly. He says the ship could break apart or “fracture.” “When we raise it you will hear the noise from the wrenching and of the fracture of internal sections but we hope the external structure remains intact,” the 52-year-old Sloane, a Senior Salvage Master with Titan Salvage, told media this week.
