Titan Maritime used large jackup barges, the Karlissa A and Karlissa B, for the New Carissa dismantling project. Once the barges were in place, a cable car system was installed to allow the crews and their equipment access to the barges from the beach.[24] The barges allowed the crews to access the wreck from 40 ft (12.2 m) above the surf.[24] The crews cut the New Carissa into removable pieces and then lifted them to the barges with cranes.[23] The cutting portion of Titan's plan was largely completed by July 31, 2008, and the company then focused on pulling the stern from the sand, a process that was measured in inches.[27][28] The project's managing director expressed confidence that the removal deadline of October 1, 2008 would be met.[24][29] By September 2008, Titan had successfully removed the majority of the wreck; no part of the ship was visible from above the water, and only a few relatively small pieces remained submerged.[30] The Karlissa A and Karlissa B were relocated on October 12, 2008, and Titan's shore operations were completely removed by November 2008.[31]
