Six years are marking today since the fatal grounding of Costa Concordia cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea, resulting in 32 deaths, 64 serious injuries, and a ship total loss. The casualty remains a classic example of how human error, lack of alertness and failure of compliance with procedures can lead to maritime disasters.
The dismantling and recycling of the Concordia cruise ship, one of the most important green ship recycling projects ever carried out in Europe, has been completed by San Giorgio del Porto, in partnership with Saipem, less than three years after the ship arrived in Genoa.
On Friday, 12 May, the Italian highest court upheld the sentence of the former Costa Concordia captain to 16 years in jail, for his role to the cruise ship capsize, that caused death of 32 people off Tuscan, in 2012.
