In the aftermath of Costa Concordia accident, the ship that partially sank and came to rest on a rock ledge along the shore of Giglio Island (13th January 2012), Trevi Group played an important role since the early stages of the wreck's removal project.
The days after the disaster, 2.380 Tons of fuel filling the tanks (when the hull crashed into “Le Scole” rocks) were removed in order to protect the delicate marine environment of the Tuscan archipelago.
After this first important phase, a further study and planning phase was started, followed by the execution of all engineering works aimed at recovering the wreck having a length of approximately 290 m, a width of approximately 35 m and a steel weight of approximately 56.000 Ton.

|Duration of work||2012 - 2013|
The General Direction of Costa Cruises entrusted this delicate, difficult and innovative wreck removal project to the Italian-American Consortium Titan-Micoperi.
Two companies of Trevi Group participated in some of the delicate and important stages for the execution of the project between June 2012 and September 2013.
RCT, a company specializing in Soil investigation, performed all investigations (June 2012 - August 2012), to define the geological structure of the site.
Trevi, a company specialized in Subsoil Engineering and Special Foundations, carried out the foundation works (August 2012 – September 2013) of the underwater steel structures (Anchor Blocks) aimed at securing the wreck (Hold Back System) and the subsequent assembly of the retaining towers employed for rotation operations (Parbuckling).
