2. What are the Uses of Ship to Shore Power Cable?

You can use a ship to shore cable for the following purposes:

  • To provide your ship with enough power that it will need while is docking at the sea port.

It assists in powering certain ship operations such as heating, ventilation, pumping, cargo handling systems and other control systems.

  • To charge the main ship power supply system with enough power for use while the ship is offshore.

This is often on the smaller vessels which do not have big power generation systems on board.

3. Are there DC and AC Ship to Shore Power Cable?

Yes, there are ship to shore DC cables.

Most of the boats have DC electrical systems that they use to power the electrical needs of the boat.

This is the reason why you will find more of DC ship to shore cables than AC ship to shore power cables.

4. What are the Benefits of Ship to Shore Power Cable?

The benefits that you will experience by using ship to shore power cables include:

  • The cables are resistant to water and can withstand wet conditions while transferring power to your boat.
  • They are durable and have a longer lifespan as it can work well in different environmental conditions.
  • The ship to shore cables have the latest form of cable technology making it more efficient in comparison to other types of cables.
  • It has different cord sets allowing you to choose the type of cord that fits the power applications in your boat.
  • The cables are capable of charging your boat within a very short period thus saving you time you spend while you are docking at the port.
  • It is available in different shapes and sizes with either three or four conductors.
  • It is light in weight and flexible thus making it easy to handle.

5. What are the Characteristics of Ship to Shore Power Cable?

The main characteristics of the ship to shore cable include:

  • It has structural advantages with proper insulation that makes it resistant to water and oil.
  • It has a wide diameter with more wire cores inside that assists in the fast charging of the boat.
  • It has a bright yellow color that makes it very easy to identify thus minimizing the chances of someone tripping over them.
  • Despite the thickness of the cable, it is in fact light in weight.
  • It is flexible with great moulding properties allowing you to fit it through different corners.

6. Is there Maximum Voltage Rating for Ship to Shore Power Cable?

The maximum voltage rating for ship to shore power cable varies depending on the type of cable.

Most ship to shore power cables have a maximum voltage rating of 600 volts.

It can handle a temperature between 50 to 105 degrees Celsius during the charging operations.

7. What is a Shore Power Connection?

Shore power connection is the provision of electrical power by the shore side to a ship while at berth.

It provides power to the ship while the main ship power engines are shut down.

The use of show power connections facilitates maintenance of ship generators and engines thus reducing noise and environmental pollution.

8. What is a Shore Power Cord?

Shore power cable is a type of marine cable that you can use to connect shore power to a vessel.

You can also refer to it as ship to shore power cable.

9. Can Ship to Shore Power Cable Cause Reverse Polarity? How do you fix it?

Yes, ship to shore power cables can cause reverse polarity.

Reverse polarity is a condition when neutral and hot conditions at a cable receptacle is wired backwards.

You can fix reverse polarity by inspecting your receptacle and checking the wire connection of the outlet.

After that, you can fix the problem by fitting the connections properly.

10. What is Ship to Shore Power Cable Structure?

A ship to shore power cable has the following components:

  • Conductor

Ship to shore power cables have 3 to 4 strands of conductors.

The conducting material can either be aluminum but in most cases is copper.

  • Insulation

This is the sheath that covers the conductor thus protecting it from leakages.

It also prevents you from electrical shocks.

  • Jacket

This is a yellow insulator that protects the inner insulation and conduction material from environmental damages.

Most of the ship to shore power cables are yellow in color making them visible to the human eye.

Apart from that, the jacket is an insulation that is resistant to water, oil, chemicals and mud thus increasing durability.

11. How do you Specify Ship to Shore Power Cable?

You need to look at the following factors when you are considering to buy a specific ship to shore power cable.

  • Power Rating in accordance to your boat voltage requirements
  • Length of the cable

This will depend on the distance from the power source to the boat.

The longer the cable, the better as you can use it even in a long stretch of power sources.

  • Plug Connections

The plug connection will depend on the adaptors that you have on the ship.

The plug has to fit perfectly with the adapters on the ship.

  • Gauge of the cable

The gauge of the cable will determine the amount of power flowing through the cable.

The thicker the gauge, the more the electric current that passes through the cable.

  • Number of conductors

Most ship to shore cables have 3 to 4 conductors allowing you to choose between the two.

You can also ask for a custom number of conductors depending on the application requirements.

12. Are there Problems you may Encounter when Using Ship to Shore Power Cable? How do solve them?

Yes, you may encounter some problems when you are using ship to shore power cables.

Some of the problems include:

  • Little or no power flowing

The show power might be on but the power is insufficient.

You can solve it by:

i. Checking the fuses connected through the ship terminal and main switch board

ii. Checking the circuit breaker at the shore supply of the switchboard

iii. Checking the interlocks of the circuit breaker to avoid paralleling of generator and shore power.

iv. Show power trips in the supply process

Make sure that you use power cables that fit well in the connectors to avoid tripping.

You should also make sure that the system is clear and with the right power voltage flowing through them.

  • Wrong shore supply

You might choose the wrong source of power thus causing extensive damages.

You will sort this by being careful and selecting the right shore supply.

13. What is Cold Ironing?

Cold ironing is the process of providing electrical power to the ship at berth by the shore side.

As this continues the main ship auxiliary engines and generators are always turned off.

14. What is the use of Show Power Converter?

This is a type of electrical circuit for converting electrical energy into the type of energy that is suitable for the load.

For instance, a DC to AC show power converter can convert DC power to AC power.

15. What are Ship to Shore Power Cable Standards?

Ship to shore power cable standards are approved by ABS, BV, DNV, and GL classification societies.

They ensure that the cables are of the right quality according to the consumer protection requirements.
