Concordia to be floated by next spring, say salvage firms


(ANSA) - Rome, August 13 - The salvage companies that will
refloat the Costa Concordia cruise liner and tug it away from
the Giglio island off the Tuscan coast presented detailed plans
to Italian authorities on Monday, paving the way for operations
to start in earnest.
According to the plans presented by Titan of the US and
Micoperi of Italy, the ship will be set right by the end of next
spring, in time for the island to be free of the wreck for the
summer tourist season.
The presentation of the detailed plan, Italy's civil
protection department, means that orders can now be placed for
the production and supplies of all the components and materials
which will be needed for the operation.
Preliminary work on preparations for the refloat began in
June. The ship will be broken up once it is taken away.
Thirty two people were killed when the Concordia capsized
on January 13 after hitting a rock while sailing close to island
of Giglio off the Tuscan coast to 'salute' local residents.
