No it has not been finished, the ASV PIONEER is mobilising in Middlesbrough (UK) with cement / grouting plants and a dive spread to build the platform, she is due to sail 21st September for the tow to Italy.

Cheers,

Dan.

Just had a look at the AIS on

http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=7&cad=rja&sqi=2&ved=0CDkQFjAG&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.marinetraffic.com%2Fais%2Fshipdetails.aspx%3Fmmsi%3D563017250&ei=hWJ1UOvNEs7a0QWS0YDwAw&usg=AFQjCNGRcQWs6lrVwgwaONfQE4DY6tsuew

As stated above ASV Pioneer is currently en-route and under tow by tug Kestral.  Currently making a headway of around 5knts somewhere off the South coast of spain. It looks like she will be towed to PIOMBINO first for further prep work and current ETA there is 16th October at 14:30.

Its been a while since I've been on the forum, but the ASV Pioneer is clearly visible next to Concordia now.

that seems highly unlikely. The may do the parbuckling (=turning) of the ship in the fall, but then they still have to fit the other side sponsons before they can refloat her. I am sure it will be deep into the winter if not next year that they actually refloat her.

I would not be so sure as I have seen Titan Salvage working before in my diving days and they work 24/7.

They sure won't want her sitting there another winter if at all possible, i think once she has been 'rolled' they will put the other sponsons on a lot faster.

Hi

I really hope all goes according to plan with the Parbuckling. I hate reading about failures.

I love to read success stories though.

Good luck Guys. Keeping my fingers crossed here.

Anyone know a date yet when they hope to 'roll her' as it's supposed to be this month.
