Capstans and winches.
Lighting (drydock, laydown area and pumphouse).
Battery charging (for some submarine requirements).
Heating, ventilating fans and air conditioning.
Methods of Installation. Install outlets for servicing the vessels in the
galleries on the sides of the dock, with other services. Carefully place outlets to
facilitate connecting ships to the shore cables. All outlets, if subject to flooding, must be
the watertight receptacle type. Provide a grounding system with connections in each
Power Requirements. Estimation of total power requirement calls for a
careful analysis of the occurrence of simultaneous power uses listed in section 8-5.3.
Individual Requirements. Correlate individual requirements by preparing
a schedule of probability of usage. For assistance in formulating a schedule, refer to
MIL-HDBK-1025/2 Dockside Utilities that shows ship service power and welding
requirements for the various classes of vessels. These values are only indicative of
range, and may be influenced by special requirements peculiar to any given installation.
Meet the direct current welding requirement with portable converters rather than a fixed
direct current bus system.
Special Requirements. The project scope will specify any special
requirements, such as battery charging. The total requirements for the electrically
supplied supporting facilities must be estimated from the final design capacity of various
Pumping Plant. All electrical equipment in pumping plants must be a
type suitable for installation in damp, humid atmospheres. Provide electrical heaters in
large motors and switchgear to minimize condensation. The power distribution
equipment should be a coordinated assembly of switchgear. Assemble the controls for
