Twelve sponsons installed; government sets June 26 deadline for the evaluation of the transportation and dismantling project

The Italian Council of Ministers, upon proposal from the Commissioner for the Concordia Emergency, has established June 26 (instead of June 16, as previously decided) as the date for the conclusion of the decision-making meeting of the "Conferenza dei Servizi", the committee composed of representatives of all competent authorities that will evaluate projects for the transportation of the Concordia wreck to an appropriate port for dismantling.

In the meantime at Giglio Island, more than 370 technicians are working 24/7 to complete the sponsons installation phase. Currently 12 sponsons have been positioned on the starboard side of the Concordia; three more are left to install on this side and four on the port side to reach the total of 30 needed for the refloating phase.

In parallel to engineering operations, environmental monitoring is also in progress.
