Some 405 safes have been removed from the dry cabins on board the wreck under the authorization of the judicial authorities, according to The Parbuckling Project. The contents will be inventoried and returned to their owners.
The ship is holding stable on its artificial seabed, monitored around the clock by systems that have not detected any significant movement since the minor shifts registered in the 15 days following the parbuckling in September.
Operations to secure the wreck for the winter are almost completed, with the last details to be finished this week.
Work continues at shipyards in Livorno and Genoa to prepare the 15 sponsons that will be positioned on the wreck's starboard (land) side and the remaining four on the port side. These will be used to refloat the vessel. Installation of the sponsons is expected in April, following the completion of work on the damaged starboard expanse of the hull.
The schedule projects the wreck to be towed by the end of June.
Saturday's Giglio meeting took place in the presence of Maria Sargentini, chairman of the Monitoring Observatory; Giglio Mayor Sergio Ortelli and Franco Porcellacchia, Costa Crociere's wreck removal project coordinator.
