    Worlds biggest salvage job is all tied upRighting the cruise ship Costa Concordia is the biggest single salvage operation ever undertaken. The use of high-performance ropes in the parbuckling exercise was crucial to its success.

    The largest and most complex maritime salvage operation ever carried out is expected to be completed this summer. The Costa Concordia parbuckling operation on the rocks of the Italian island of Giglio has been a success in many ways not least for the objective of retrieving in one piece such a massive vessel (117,000 tons) with minimal damage to the delicate marine environment on which it foundered. *KIJRGTHQTOCPEGTQRGURNC[GFCMG[TQNGKP VJG QRGTCVKQP &WVEJOCPWHCEVWTGT &5/&[PGGOC JCU DGGP UWRRN[KPI */2' JKIJOQFWNWU RQN[GVJ[NGPG DTG DTCPFGF CU&[PGGOCHQTTQRGUWUGFKPVWICPFUCNXCIGQRGTCVKQPUHQTCNOQUV[GCTU4QRGUOCFGYKVJ &[PGGOC JCXG DGGP WUGF CTQWPF VJGYQTNF VQ JCWN VQ UCHGV[ GXGT[VJKPI HTQOUVTKEMGPUJKRU UVTCPFGF KP UJCNNQYYCVGTU VQJWTTKECPGFCOCIGF QKN RNCVHQTOU $WV VJGCosta Concordia RTQLGEV KU RTQDCDN[ VJGEQORCP[U OQUV ETKVKECN CPF EGTVCKPN[ KVUOQUVJKIJRTQNGUCNXCIGRTQLGEVVQFCVG&5/ &[PGGOCU UVTCVGI[ KU VQ GPCDNGNCTIGCPFEQORNGZLQDUVQDGECTTKGFQWVYKVJKPETGCUGFUCHGV[CPFTGNKCDKNKV[CEEQTFKPIVQVJG EQORCP[U )NQDCN /CTMGVKPI OCPCIGT-GFCT 5WNG 6JG Costa Concordia UCNXCIGQRGTCVKQP KU VJG WNVKOCVG GZCORNG QH VJKUUVTCVGI[YQTMKPIKPRTCEVKEG6JKU KU VJG DKIIGUV UCNXCIG QRGTCVKQPECTTKGFQWVD[CP[DQF[CP[YJGTGUCKF5WNG0GXGT DGHQTG JCU C UJKR QH VJKU UK\G DGGPUCNXCIGF KPQPGRKGEG0QTOCNN[YTGEMUCTGEWVWRCPFVJGRKGEGUCTGVJGPTGOQXGFDWVVJCVYCUPQVCPQRVKQPKPVJKUECUGFWGVQVJG
