This from todays Torygraph, not much of technical interest more on legal goings on.

The 'C' funnel has now finally gone.

The internal components were removed before Christmas and now the plating and support structure has been removed.

On the technical side:

Not all the holdback anchor points are finished, only the main ones midships. There are still more to be placed at the stern.

Drilling for the smaller receiving platforms at the stern is complete.

Drilling is still in progress for the three large platforms, with a modification: Instead of 6 piles each as per original plan there are only five, three nearer to the hull and two on the far side.

So, they reduce the work required and still plan on taking six months longer than they claimed. The two years for the job, that some pundits mentioned early on in the process, does not seem so far out now.

From the official website, and looking at the site plan, it would appear that the main reason for removing the trademark 'C' funnel is to give space to drill for the remaining holdback anchor points.

Also: Maybe every little bit of weight could be a factor in the turning moment required during parbuckling.

The Voe Earl is listed as working in support of Micoperi 30.

One year on and the world still awaits the Italian Authorities to release that elusive incident investigation report of their findings into this incident and perhaps provide some objective answers to all the speculation that has been discussed in this and many other forums over the past twelve months. Lloyds List today echos those concerns and provides us with a time line at http://www.lloydslist.com/ll/topic/costa-concordia/ .

Unfortunately there are no descriptions of what the photos show.

I spoke an hour ago with my friends that own a yard in Aliaga.Italians and Americans make voyages to Turkey to see if there is any scrapping yard interested to dismantle the unlucky Concordia...There are some problems in the Italian Ports due to the depth of some ports..But the most serious problem with the Turkish yards ..is how to tow this wreck from Giglio to Aliaga..Possible end of the total project is October 2013

For a while I have not found the monthly progress report concerning the salvage published on Regione Toscanas homepage.

Is it moved to another site perhaps ?

There is a complete website devoted to the salvage operation - http://www.theparbucklingproject.com/

ICS: Italy’s Failure to Produce a Final Report on the Costa Concordia Disaster is ‘Unacceptable’

By gCaptain Staff On February 5, 2013


During an ICS Board meeting held Tuesday in London, members of the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) expressed their frustrations with Italy for failing to provide a final casualty report into the Costa Concordia tragedy, now over one year after the ship ran aground and partially sank.

In a statement, the ICS Board welcomed measures taken by the International Maritime Organization to enhance cruise ship safety since the incident, but slammed Italy for failing to provide its final casualty report.

“The response of IMO so far has been measured and reasonable and we have been impressed by the commitment amongst governments to avoid knee jerk reactions” said CS Chairman, Masamichi Morooka. “But IMO is under increasing pressure to take forward far more radical steps in advance of Italy publishing the complete results of its accident investigation, which it has still singularly failed to do. Given the seriousness of the disaster, which happened over a year ago, this failure by Italy is simply unacceptable. We still have no official understanding of what the underlying causes were with respect to an accident that really should never have happened.”

ICS says that it believes that the Costa Concordia tragedy has highlighted the seemingly inadequate obligations on the part of flag states to submit the results of accident investigations to IMO. ICS adds that the impasse created by the failure of Italy to report definitively on such a serious casualty indicates that action may be needed in an area where other flag states are also commonly guilty with respect to less high profile incidents which are nevertheless serious and from which important safety lessons could be learned.

During the meeting, the ICS Board agreed that, in discussion with governments, ICS will take forward proposals to IMO as to how the obligations of flag states with respect to casualty reports might be strengthened.

Thank you DMA.
A number of mistakes and short on detail, but the best I have seen to date.
The official parbuckle site is a disgrace.

From http://www.cranestodaymagazine.com

One year after the Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia wreckage, victims' relatives watched as a crane lowered part of a rock that was removed from the hull of the ship into the water.

Two Effer marine cranes 200000 on the Voe Earl platform have been nearby the shores of the Giglio island, Tuscany, for months for the removal of the shipwrecks. The cranes put the rock into the sea during the one-year anniversary ceremony. The rock had been torn from the ship during the collision and remained stuck in the hull for almost one year.

Well spotted Geoff.

That clip just about sums it all up in the very simplest manner, maybe verging on the patronising as is the normal manner with American journalists.
Just a pity that they included the spurious clips from You Tube which were of another ship entirely.

In the timing of this CBS feature is perhaps worth mentioning that the 'Parbucklingproject' website released their Press Pack one month AFTER this was shown. Presumably so that the two did not conflict. Or am I being over-cynical?

For anyone who has not spotted it, and is sufficiently interested, the press pack is a fairly huge downloadable file consisting of photographs, video footage and a couple of Power-Point presentations.



JC: From the evidence presented so far, 'concentration' or a lapse thereof appears to have little to do with it.
But then, when you have a TrackPilot flashing in your face and proximity warnings sounding it might be a little difficult to concentrate, so you could be correct in a way.
