Who can ever forget the sight of the cruise liner, the Costa Concordia, capsized on the rocks of the island of Giglio. This was due to the negligence of the captain, now serving time for gross negligence.

South African Marine Salvage Master, Nick Sloane, was called in by Titan Salvage to head up the operation of righting the ship and tow it to a nearby port for dismantling. Nick will talk about the epic task of saving Giglio from the devastating consequences of the Costa Concordia sliding into the sea a hundred metres away, which would have led to an environmental disaster.
