Costa Concordia wreck can be lifted by huge salvage vessel

The wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship could be loaded aboard a colossal salvage vessel after a deal was struck with a Dutch company, according to BBC News.

The Dockwise Vanguard, capable of picking up oil rigs, has been recruited as an option to move the ship. The vessel can sink under the Concordia then rise up to lift it clear of the water before sailing it to be scrapped.

Some 32 people died after the Concordia ran aground with more than 4,000 passengers and crew in January 2012.

Salvage teams moved the ship to an upright position last month, enabling divers to find the remains of one of two people who were still unaccounted for.
