Costa Concordia rises in 1 minute time lapse video

LINK

quote:

Yesterday, a salvage crew began the slow process of righting the Costa Concordia, the cruise ship that has lain off the coast of Italy for over a year after a deadly crash. The operation, initially set to take 10 to 12 hours, stretched to 19, but early this morning the ship was finally pulled off the seabed and tipped upright. Now, it will spend several more months on the coast, resting on buoyant underwater platforms until it's towed to port and broken up. The process was slow and methodical, as operators threaded cables and pulley systems around the Concordia and slowly inched it off the rocks. But a dramatic time-lapse video condenses the process into one minute, giving a better idea of how the team tilted the ship 65 degrees to expose its previously submerged side.

The Concordia has been cited as the largest capsized cruise ship to ever be rotated with the "parbuckling" system used above. In a press conference, Italian civil protection chief Franco Gabrielli said that the ship was not as damaged as expected, but stunning photographs from Reuters published on Business Insider show the effects of the disaster, capturing shattered windows and balconies on the ship's side. Now that the Concordia has been righted, there may also be a chance of finding the bodies of two missing victims of the wreck, which claimed a total of 32 lives.

I wonder how much the boat is worth in salvage value?

That was actually my "honeymoon" ship. So instead of cruising for one week, we toured Italy for 2 weeks.

The recovery mission is worth more than the ship

quote:

Miami-based Titan Salvage and Micoperi, an Italian company, are leading the project, the world’s most expensive wreck removal operation, which is expected to cost more than €600m – greater than the value of the ship – once it is eventually floated and towed away for scrapping next year.

I'm always left in awe by how massive these ships are when I see pictures like that.

That is phenomenal. I wonder how many bodies are in there.

There are only two missing people, I believe.

Looking at those pictures, it's hard to imagine how anyone died unless they couldn't swim. Also, that captain, what the hell was he thinking being that close to shore?

I think he was carrying too much speed when he made the drive by. Probably got closer than he intended. The water still looks pretty deep when you see how low it is sitting in the water.

Some people got trapped under or in the boat.

He was drunk, wasn't he?

And IIRC, he was also "courting" a lady at the time of the accident.

I don't think he was drunk...

quote:

On the night of 13th January 2012 Captain Francesco Schettino had ordered the ship to deviate from the planned route as a 'salute' to those on the shore. But at 9.45pm the ship hit a reef, which the captain later claimed was not marked on maps or satellite navigation euqipment.
there were some eyewitness accounts that he was enjoying some red wine with a beautiful lady, if that's what you're talking about.
