Costa Concordia on Discovery Channel

By September 18, 2013

Follow me on:

Discovery Channel will take a detailed look at the Costa Concordia salvage operation in a special program that premieres at 22:00 EDT this Friday, September 20th.

The program will feature recovery operations at the site of the largest parbuckling operation ever attempted, including a new time lapse sequence of the vessel rotation. An often unseen side of the salvage operation will take a look at the challenging conditions faced by the engineers and other Titan crew members as they prepared to do what had never been done before at such a huge scale. Salvage Master Nick Sloane says, "It's the biggest salvage operation by a long way."

Now that phase one is successful we can take a look back at an impressive modern engineering feat and appreciate the work of everyone who made the safe recovery possible.

Inside Raising the Concordia on Discovery Channel Friday September 20 at 10:00pm EDT.
