SAN FRANCISCO – PIER 27 SHORE POWER SYSTEM
The San Francisco Shore Power installation was the first installation in the state of California and came online in October 2010. This dual voltage system (providing both 11kV and 6.6kV power) is equipped with two fixed Cable Positioning Devices (CPD) that can accommodate separate cruise ship berthing locations. Cochran Marine worked side by side with the utility to help them better understand the connection requirements and provide the appropriate levels of power for the project. Cochran Marine acted as the General Contractor on this project, providing design and preconstruction support, equipment procurement, contractor management, and commissioning support once the system was installed.
