COSTA CONCORDIA Underway On Her Final Voyage

The final stages of the largest marine salvage project in history came a step closer to completion Wednesday, July 23, 2014, as the COSTA CONCORDIA began to move away from the island of Giglio on a one-way voyage to Genoa, Italy for dismantling. The ocean-going tug BLIZZARD took the lead position in the tow off the wrecked cruise ship’s starboard bow, accompanied by the tug RESOLVE EARL on her port side. Altogether 14 vessels of varying descriptions will accompany the convoy at a speed of no more than 2.5 knots across the open water.
