Determine if there are any unusual job hazards. Identify the power cable
rigging device (boom trucks, cranes, fork lifts) 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. (See
picture K.)

a. Power cable protection may require barricades to protect them from damage. (See
picture L.) Contractor work may require crossing power cables with vehicular equipment of
sufficient weight to cause cable damage. Welcoming crowds at a ship’s homecoming may require
crowd control from security forces to maintain safe approach distances (see Table 12).
Identification of cable voltage and other appropriate safety hazard information should be provided
on all cables in conformance with activity requirements.

b. If there is any possibility that pier vault access is required emergency rescue equipment
will be readily available (see Picture M).

143 Procedures. List purpose of the SOP, potential energy sources, tools
and personal protective equipment, references to other SOP’s, this handbook’s sections, and
OSHA sections and procedures, as applicable. The procedures may be broken down into
individual SOP’s such as the following activities.

a. Reel truck operation.

b. Boom truck operation.

c. Moving power cables on pier.

d. Setting up berths for shore electrical power.

e. 480-volt ship connect.

f. 480-volt ship disconnect.

g. 4160-volt ship connect.

h. 4160-volt ship disconnect.

i. Shore power location of accidental grounds on ship’s service electrical power called in

by ships.

j. Remote operation of shore circuit breakers from the pier electrical outlet assembly.

k. Shore power cable assembly.

l. Operating camlock vulcanizers. Procedures. Emergency procedures should be set up for mishap
reporting and summoning medical aid as covered in Section 4. Foul weather conditions requiring
changes to normal procedures will be covered.


Portable Shore Power Cables and Receptacles. Portable shore power cables
and receptacles conform to specific specification requirements.

9.6.1Low-Voltage (480-Volt) Power Cable Specification. Cable will be three-
conductor, flexible, unshielded, 600-volt, type THOF-500 kcm complying with MIL-C-915, Cable
and Cord Electrical, for Shipboard Use for 450-volt three-phase, 60-hertz ungrounded ship’s
service power (order number THOF-500-NSN 6154-01-008-4568). Single-conductor cables may
be used at some installations but is not recommended.



9.6.2Medium-Voltage (4,160-Volt) Power Cable Specification. Cable will be three-
conductor, 8000-volt with an overall ethylene propylene jacket designed for continuous flexing
service and operation in severe environments. Cable should be similar to SHD-GC commercial
mining cable without the ground or ground-check conductors. Comply with NEMA WC-8
(ICEA S-68-516), Ethylene-Propylene-Rubber-Insulated Cable for the Transmission and
Distribution of Electrical Energy. Cable will be rated for at least 360 amperes.
