The wreck of the Costa Concordia was successful re floated on Monday  in preparation for it to be towed away to be scrapped for metal, 30 months after it hit a reef and capsized off the Italian coast, killing 32 people.

The heavily listing ship had been dragged upright last September, and now that it’s been re floated, towing is set to begin July 21st to bring it to Genoa for scrapping, a trip that’s expected to take five days.

Concordia’s Italian captain is being tried in Italy for manslaughter, causing the shipwreck and abandoning the ship before everyone was evacuated.
