Giglio Island, September 16 - The operation to lift
the wrecked Costa Concordia cruise ship and turn it upright may
take as long as 18 hours instead of the original 12 calculated
by technicians.
"We had originally thought it would take 12 hours, but even
if it takes 15 or 18 the objective is to do things well," said
Franco Porcellacchia, who is in charge of the Concordia removal
project.
"We are not running behind, we are happy about how things
are going".
Long-submerged portions of the cruise ship became visible
to the naked eye around two hours after it began being raised at
9:00 local time on Monday.
It was immediately possible to distinguish a
one-metre-thick section that was previously underwater and was
darker than the part that remained out of water.
