SHORE-TO-SHIP ELECTRICAL POWER CONNECTIONS
CONNECT/DISCONNECT RESPONSIBILITIES. Electrical shore facilities
are utilized to provide dockside electrical service to ships operating in a cold iron mode.
The shore's electrical supervisor (SHORES ES) is responsible for the power provision
of cables connected to shore receptacles in pier electrical outlet assemblies and rigged
to the ship. The ship's electrical officer (SHIPS EO) is in ultimate charge in providing
cable connections to the ship's electrical bus fed by the ship's generators and dictating
when shore electrical power is energized or deenergized to supply this bus. General
steps and performance responsibilities are provided in Tables 13-1 and 13-2 for ship
