Costa Concordia Parbuckling Completed
Officials have confirmed that the parbuckling of the Costa Concordia has been completed after a 19 hour operation and the ship is now sitting in its final upright position on underwater platforms. Oil booms were placed around vessel to contain any pollution or oil trapped in the ship, but no spill was spotted during the operation. The next step in the Concordia salvage is to stabilising it and preparing for it to be re-floated. Giant buoyancy tanks will be attached before it is towed away for scrap in the following months.
