Italy: The Costa Concordia cruise vessel will be floated off the seabed near the Italian island of Giglio in June to be towed away and scrapped. But it has yet to be decided where the ship, which is some two-and-a-half times the size of the Titanic, will be dismantled, reports Engineering & Technology magazine.
The Costa Concordia capsized two years ago after hitting rocks, with the loss of 32 lives. According to Franco Gabrielli, the man tasked by the Italian government with overseeing the salvage operation, around 12 companies are expected to bid for the dismantling contract.
