very sad what happened in Italy 12 people died so far and 20 are still missing (i think that  they are also gone  :'( 8 days in a huge air bubble without fresh air and water or food )

but here in the Netherlands did beached a ship (the Aztec Maiden) yesterday at Wijk aan Zee (near Amsterdam) but it is floating again (today at 17:00 hour the tugs and coast guard have towed here away from the beach)
 

at 20-1-2012 Istanbul a Sierra leone-flagged cargo ship called Kayan-1 86M (282 Feet) carrying empty containers due to the strong winds when it got dragged and brushed against two other cargo ships, the Dutch flagged Slochterdiep and the Tanzania-flagged Adria Blu she is stranded

rescuers looking at the stranded Kayan 1 at Istanbul

the Aria Blu


19-1-2012 Northsea

Just watching now as a crane barge is being moved into position next to the ship.
No doubt in preparation of the pumping out of the oil later this week..

Looking at Cam 5 It looks like the top part of the funnel has already gone:)

The salvage team expects to have one chance of removing the ship as planned, because she is slowly being crushed by her own weight..

I remember once when there was an issue with the island wanting to postpone the lift to avoid any interference in the tourist industry. I remember them saying that it should be postponed to at least january 2014. I feel happy that the island can take a rightful decision and have the ship removed as soon as possible. Maybe a month of no tourism but once the ship has been removed, it has been removed!

However, i know for sure CC wouldn't look the same after sitting on the seabed for over a year.

I remember readings something about South Korea wanting the ship as nobody else wanted it. Now it's so rusty and bad it's not even up to North Korea standard!  :doh:
On a serious note its worrying that they don't think it could survive the lift and they only have one shot at it.

Imagine what noises would come out of the site managers mouth if they lifted the ship up and it just fell apart...  ;D

Yeah, with a few more symbols added would probably be about right!  :lol:

Alright, somewhere in the following weeks they will begin to "parbuckle" the ship.  :)

New update from yesterday.

Quote
The operation to right the ship Costa Concordia (known as “parbuckling”) has been given the go-ahead for this month: this was the outcome of a meeting convened in Rometoday at the headquarters of the Civil Protection Department, by the Emergency Commissioner Franco Gabrielli, and attended by representatives from the Advisory Committee, the Observatory, the Micoperi-Titan Consortium and the cruise line Costa Crociere.
Final authorization to proceed with the operation to rotate the wreck is subject to submission of all the test certificates following inspection of all the finished structures and tocompletion of the preliminary activities required before the actual parbuckling can begin. All of this should take place by the end of next week; at any time thereafter, as soon as the sea and weather conditions are favorable, the operation torotate the wreck into an upright position can begin.
The parties present at the Rome meeting all contributed to the discussions – within their respective areas of expertise – providing guidelines and instructions that the contracted firms will be obliged to abide by during the parbuckling andwhich were added to the final document drafted subsequently.
The decision taken at today’s meeting is the result ofcontinuous work – with a constant exchange of information and documents – between the companies contracted to remove the wreck (world leaders in marine salvage and naval engineering) and the Emergency Commissioner’s Office, particularly its Monitoring Observatory. Over the months, in fact, the potential risks associated with theparbuckling were assessed and specific precautionary measures were taken accordingly. In this regard, a comparison was made between the risk of leaving the ship upright throughout the winter, exposed to adverse sea and weather conditions, or else leaving the wreck in its currenttilted position for the same period of time; the conclusionreached was that the former option is preferable to the latter – another winter left lying at an unnatural angle would possibly have comprised the parbuckling operation if this had been delayed until next spring. The meeting also agreed on a weighty document dealing with management of the water inside the hull; indeed, since the start of August,preliminary work has been proceeding involving the“remediation” of the liquid material and its removal from some accessible parts of the ship.
As has been the case all along, arrangements were also made to inform the population of Giglio about the latest developments; to this end, next week a meeting is scheduled on the island with the Prefect Mr. Gabrielli, the Mayor of Giglio, the Chairman of the Monitoring Observatory and representatives from the Micoperi-Titan Consortium and Costa Crociere.
A few days after this, a press conference will be held to announce to the media the likely date of commencement of the operation – this is still uncertain at the moment – as well as to explain the associated details and provide logistical instructions so that reporters can cover the story properly without hindering the parbuckling or the work of the Civil Protection Department, which is actively engaged at Isola del Giglio.
