This morning in Rome, Italy, officials announced further details for what will happen to the remains of the ill fated Costa Concordia. The wreck will be refloated and will finally be towed away this June. Where she’ll be towed, has not been confirmed yet. It’ll be a scrap yard, thats a guarantee.
Costa has setup a bid process. Similar to how they took bids and proposals for the salvaging of the ship, they will accept bids from organizations/groups who wish to dismantle the 114,147gt ship.
It is not know when the proposals are due or when they will be announced. The final results of the bids will be announced end of February/early March.
