How Dockwise Vanguard would carry Costa Concordia to the shipyard

On October 10 (2013) Costa contracted with Boskalis for availability of Dockwise Vanguard during the summer of 2014 to lift and carry the wreck of Costa Concordia to a shipyard where it will be dismantled. This video shows how it would happen. At this point, Costa has only contracted for the availability of the ship, which is the largest of its kind, and it is just an option that is being considered over this winter in case the ship cannot be safely towed as was originally planned once it is refloated.

The complete story appeared in the October 10, 2013, edition of Cruise News Daily.
