Costa Concordia’s Fate is Finally Known

Italian authorities have finally decided on the shipyard they will bring the soon-to-be-re-floated Costa Concordia. After having laid partially capsized since January 2012, the 114,137grt will be towed to the Tuscan port of Piombino.

The choice could delay the refloating effort as infrastructure upgrades in Piombino are needed.

The target that Italian officials are eying is sometime in the fall (around September.)
