Since 2005, Watts Marine has supplied nine systems to seven different ports, all of which include ongoing management of connections.
Terminal 19 to 31
The Watts Marine team completed the relocation of both the Princess Cruise Lines and Holland America Lines Shore Power Systems from Seattle Terminal 30 to Terminal 91 in 2009.
Canada Place Shore Power System
The Watts Marine team completed the design and installation of two Shore Power Systems for the Vancouver Port Authority in 2009. Each system is located in a different area to service their incoming Cruise Ships. We helped the Port and Cruise Lines coordinate with the Utility providers to ensure that sufficient power was delivered to the terminals and that rate and fee structures for power were established before the installation began.
Pier 27 Shore Management
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. The Watts Marine team 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.
B Street Cruise Ship Terminal Shore Power System
The Watts Marine Shore Power System installed at the Port of San Diego B Street Cruise Ship Terminal was unveiled in December 2010. This dual voltage system was the second installation of our Marine Shore Power System in California and was installed in response to California’s aggressive clean air requirements for ports. The Watts Marine team provided design and preconstruction support, procurement and commissioning services once the system was installed.
Long Beach Cruise Terminal System
This Shore Power System came online in December 2011. The dual voltage system represents the next generation of the Watts Marine Shore Power System, with upgraded independent cable monitoring ability in anticipation of new IEC regulations that are expected to take effect in the coming years. The new monitoring enables the individual assessment of each cable to ensure integrity of the system and proper functioning and delivery of electricity to the ship.
Port Authority Shore Power System
The Watts Marine team completed the design and installation of a Shore Power System for the Halifax Port Authority in September 2014. The system serves incoming Cruise Ships at Piers 20, 21, and 22. This Shore Power System is equipped with the same automation and cable positioning devices used at other Watts Marine installations. The Watts Marine team provided design and preconstruction support, procurement and commissioning services.
Red Hook Cruise Terminal Shore Power System
The Watts Marine Shore Power Management System came online in 2015 is the Red Hook Cruise Terminal System in Brooklyn, NY. This dual voltage system serves both Princess Cruise Lines and Cunard Line. The Watts Marine team provided design and preconstruction support, procurement and commissioning services.
