Refloat of Costa Concordia Completed

At about noon today (local time on Giglio), Titan Micoperi declared the refloat of Costa Concordia completed. Towing to Genoa for breaking of the ship will begin on Wednesday morning.

The operation will begin at approximately 8:30am, and actual departure of the convoy of 14 vessels is expected to begin about four hours later.

The ship was refloated with a slight inclination toward the forward starboard side so the water
could drain from the emerged decks.
