(ANSA) - Grossetto, September 6 - Preliminary work to
remove the doomed Costa Concordia cruise liner from Giglio
Island began Thursday.
Workers are attempting to anchor the wreck with cables so
that it can be carefully turned upright and then re-floated away
from the island.
It is expected that this first phase of anchoring the wreck
will be completed by Sept. 19.
The salvage companies that will re-float the Costa
Concordia and tug it away have said they expect the island
should be free of the wreck by next spring.
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.
