Concordia break up
 
The Concordia is to be refloated, taken to a port and broken up.

This is usually done in Asia where the vessel is utterly destroyed. I happen to believe it will be done in a western port as so much of the vessel remained above water and there are so many useful parts, electronic and otherwise.

What's your take?

I agree with you Todd, while there would be a lot to re-use, also a lot that will not be. I was sorry to see the web-can gone....Wonder if they will put it back on when the work begins to move it/break it apart?

Donna, I believe that they will tow it to a site where it will be broken up. The ship may not be in condition to go very far, otherwise it will be dismantled and broken up in Asia. They can do the job much cheaper. I am sure that will salvage whatever is useful.

My take is:

What a waste. :(

Hello,

I thought I would let anyone interested to know that you can see the Concordia as of right now on a site called kroooz-cams.com and from there you go to the Mediterranean section and chose the Gigilio webcam, you can see the poor Concordia and her side still and a huge crane beside it.

Such a tragic thing that happened for everyone involved.

With such a large ship I wonder what it's worth just in raw materials to recycle. Sure some systems above water are probably completely intact but what about the rest? Old ships are sunk and turned into reefs I doubt that would occur if they are that valuable.

I am sure they can salvage a lot of the metal, but it will get nothing close to what it was worth before the accident. I guess, better something than nothing??
