For most people, the issue of global warming has become a part of daily life. And for many, particularly those in coastal communities, declining air quality and the associated health consequences are the most recognizable evidence of the challenges ahead. The shipping industry has responded to this issue with various initiatives including the HVSC-High Voltage Shore Power Connection standards. Ports and shipping companies now have an effective means to reduce their carbon footprint.
Specializing in solutions for the cruise ship industry, Patton & Cooke has developed a 15 kV class 500 Amp cable coupler which can be used in single or dual voltage applications including 5 kV, 6.6 kV, 11 kV and up to 15 kV both at 50 and 60 hz operation. Our shore power series coupler designs utilize the same features that have made Patton & Cooke couplers the preferred coupler for harsh mining environments worldwide. Patton & Cooke is the only authorized supplier to the US Navy for medium voltage shore power couplers.
