It is confirmed that, weather permitting, operations to re-float the shipwrecked Italian vessel Costa Concordia will start on Monday, at a cost estimated to be over 600 million euros.

The operation will be technically difficult, and if it goes wrong, could result in extensive pollution of the Pelagos Sanctuary for Mediterranean Marine Mammals.
