There are probably a great deal of unknown factors in the stability of Costa Concordia, but you can make some safe assumptions and have additional margins to avoid problems.

BTW, the "normal" method of beaching a ship at high tide does not apply to modern shipbreaking yards such as those located in Northern Europe. The EU regulations would not allow the vessel to be broken up in Alang, Gadani Beach or Chittagong...

 Costa Concordia, as you mentioned, measures 391 m. so a dispensation is required. However, that dispensation has already been granted by the relevant authorities.


She is 100m shorter at around 290m, so if the quay is longer than 300m, no problem.

Thanks Ben, it should be 291 m. ( not 391 m. ).

The quay in question has approval for ships of a length of up to 360 m. so it shouldn't be a problen.

Regards
