Raising Costa Concordia Scheduled for September 16
 
The parbuckling project has announced that they plan to commence righting the Costa Concordia at 6am local time on Monday, September 16. This corresponds to midnight going into Monday on the eastern timezone, 11pm central time, etc. A final go/no-go decision will be made by 2pm local time Sunday. The lift could take 'all day' according to the team.

Read more and hopefully see the video at the project website located here. It has been a heavily visited site to access over the past few days, so keep trying if you don't access it.

It is 'all systems go' and they are now locked in to the start times listed in the above post. Once they start they cannot stop and put it back in place for a do-over, and it will take 11 to 12 hours.


All times are GMT -7. The time now is 05:29 AM.
