While the Costa Concordia remains on her side off the Tuscan island of Giglio, the salvage master, South African Mr Nick Sloane, who works for US-owned company Titan Salvage says the vessel has compressed about 3m since coming to rest on the rocks 19 months ago. Mr Nick Sloane, says everything is on track for the Concordia to be righted in September, adding the excitement was building around the site of wreck off the Tuscan island of Giglio, as his salvage team prepared to right the ship by using rope slings. Four of the six large platforms to be used for the ship to be rolled on to had been built and the other two should be ready by the end of next month.
