It’s been 10 months since salvage teams rolled the 114.000 t vessel, Costa Concordia, off the rocks in one of the most complex shipwreck recovery efforts ever undertaken.

The recovery involved attaching sponsoons filled with water to each side of the vessel. After draining water from the sponsoons and meanwhile pumping compressed air into the sponsoons, the ship began to float. Conquest was responsible for placing the sponsoons using a crane. TWD was requested by Conquest to give a structural verification on the crane boom design, which needed support during transit.
