be able to lay and protect cables on piers and to operate cable rigging devices at both
the ship's cable access ports and at the cable storage areas. They should be familiar
with operating the ungrounded electrical connection required to be compatible with the
ship's electrical system. Workers should be qualified for working on and be familiar with
the safety requirements for high-voltage distribution systems supplying substations and
electrical power outlet assemblies supplying shore-to-ship electrical power.
Note: SOPs applying to this work should be based on requirements given herein as
adjusted for the activity's operating procedures. The SOPs should address the following
areas and be used in the day-to-day pre-job briefing.
13-5.2.1 SOP Preparation Responsibility. The activity responsible for shore-to-ship
electrical service should prepare general SOPs with space for each individual
organization requirement correctly filled in for each specific ship's service and for each
service period. SOPs will be distributed to all personnel involved.
13-5.2.2 Specific Organization Requirements. The names of shore personnel and
their responsibilities will be listed. The name of the ship and the docking location will be
given. The ship's specific requirements as to the following will be noted.
Voltage of the estimated ampere load requirements including supershore
Number of ship-to-shore power cables required.
Type of cable terminations, in-line connections, jumpers, as required.
Identification of any interface problems.
Special paralleling requirements if any longer than 10 seconds for ship-to-
shore paralleling or paralleling between shore transformers.
Determine if there are any unusual job hazards. Identify the power cable rigging device
(boom trucks, cranes, fork lifts) as shown in Figure 13-16 and whether their location
requires structural approval by a facility engineer of their proposed location. Verify that
any construction work will not interfere with power cable placing and rigging. Determine
special safety provisions.
