The wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship could be loaded aboard a colossal salvage vessel after a deal was struck with a Dutch company.The 275m-long (902ft) Vanguard has no bow and a flat stern, allowing it to contain the longer cruise ship. The Vanguard, described by its Dutch owner Royal Boskalis as the world's largest semi-submersible ship, uses vast ballast tanks to lower and raise itself around its cargo. The company said modifications would need to be made before it is capable of carrying Concordia.

Very Very cool!
I have been watching them work on the Concordia via webcam and can't wait to see them move it out.
It would be amazing to see the Dockwise Vanguard in action.
