Concordia dismantling and recycling operations are quickly progressing.

 

About 200 technicians are working on the wreck and cutting decks – from 3 to 1 – while strip out operations continue on decks 1 and 0 to remove internal fitting.

 

As the weight of the wreck becomes lighter, it has been possible to remove 8 sponsons so far (S1, S2, S3, P1, P2, P3, P4 and P8). Simultaneously operations are in progress to restore autonomous buoyancy to the hull so to allow to remove all the sponsons and then to transfer the wreck to dry dock where the final demolition will take place.
