The Titan-Micoperi salvage team has successfully completed the first stage of its operation to refloat Costa Cruises’ Costa Concordia off the coast of Giglio Island, Italy.

Engineers started the operation to refloat the ship on 14 July after Nick Sloane, the senior salvage master, and the rest of his team arrived at the Remote Operations Center, which is located on Concordia. Work to remove the final 1,000 tonnes of weight began at 8.30am.

Concordia has now been partially refloated and her bow and stern are about 2.2m above the underwater platform she has been resting on since the parbuckling project started in September 2016.
