Rome, August 1 - The semi-submerged Costa Concordia
needs to be righted before the winter or the ship's removal from
the Tuscan island of Giglio will be in danger, Environment
Undersecretary Flavio Cirillo said Thursday.
The Concordia has been lying off the island since the
January 2012 disaster that claimed 32 lives.
Civil Protection Department head Franco Gabrielli said in
June that he hoped the ship could be righted from its current
position this September and be towed away from the Island of
Giglio waters by November or March.
But last month Gabrielli said operations could be frozen
until next year unless the wreckage outfit responsible for the
massive salvage job provides a slew of new clarifications.
Cirillo believes this could be problematic.
He told the Lower House's environment committee that the
whole removal operation would be at "risk" if the Concordia
stayed another winter where it is.
Cirillo cited experts from the Titan Micoperi Consortium,
which has been tasked by Costa Cruises to remove the ship's
carcass.
