Costa Concordia preliminary report (no joke this time)

Point your browser here, to find the preliminary findings presentation, from the Italian government's investigation into the grounding, and partial sinking of the Costa Concordia, earlier this year. This brief was given at the IMO's Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) meeting which occurred in late May 2012. You can find a press release of the meeting here, where they highlight several safety recommendations for passenger ships.

Overall the presentation by Italy's MIT, is a rudimentary presentation of known facts about the accident. There is scant information about the exact happenings in the engine room(s), but then again it was not super relevant, its clear the ship had suffered a fatal blow no matter what the series of event was.
