The Oil Spill Response team was immediately activated and the area was cleaned through the use of absorbent booms.
At the moment, there is no evidence of leakage in progress, according to the update.
The team is replacing the absorbing booms in the area. As explained, technical assessments have showed that there is no damage in the structure, nor in the hot tap flanges.
The latest refloating activities have seen the Concordia wreck emerge for about 6.5 meters.
There are still 6 starboard sponsons to be lowered to their final position. Once this operation is completed, deck 4 and 3 will emerge rapidly one after the other.
The weather and sea conditions, especially strong winds, over the last couple of days and the complexity of the operations, have impacted the overall time schedule with some delays.
Technicians are still aiming at a departure on Monday July 21st but are also looking at Tuesday 22nd as an alternative possibility.
