Costa Concordia cruise liner could be re-floated by June

The shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner could be re-floated by June 2014, the engineer overseeing the long-delayed salvage operation off the Italian island of Giglio said on Saturday.

He said giant tanks that will help float the ship will be fixed to its side by April, mirroring the ones already welded to the other side before the 290-metre (951-foot) ship was dragged upright in September.

“This would allow us to re-float the ship by June,” Franco Porcellacchia told local residents on Giglio
