#CostaConcordia salvage operation redux – an annotated graphic

Having posted a Costa Concordia salvage infographic exactly one month ago today, now here we have another – the companion piece, so to speak.

It has been reported that a Dutch salvage vessel, the Dockwise Vanguard, the world’s largest semi-submersible ship, could be used to lift and ferry away the now-righted Costa Concordia. More typically used to move oil rigs about the place, Dockwise Vanguard has signed on to the project in a £19 million deal. The intention is to ultimately strip and scrap the Costa Concordia, so in light of this deal that must be some pretty lucrative scrap bobbing about in the Tyrrhenian Sea.

We blogged about the Costa Concordia disaster on a number of occasions last year. If you click on the Costa Concordia link in the Tags section below, that’ll take you to a page gathering together all of our related infographics. Pretty neat, huh?
