The Concordia’s stern and bow are now detached from the false sea bed by about 1 meter, according to a Monday update from Costa.

The wreck is floating thanks to the sponsons. Before being towed 30 meters East, the Concordia will need to be refloated of another meter.

Technicians have now begun to tighten the chains on starboard sponson S14, as planned.
