According to IEC 80005 standard the cable management system for ferries is installed on shore side. Ferry terminals characterize that the vessels always moor at the same position because cars and trucks access to the vessel via a ramp. The position of the cable management system is therefore defined exactly at the terminal. Only the connection height changes due to ship movement caused by tide and cargo.
The tidal differences vary from port to port with tidal movements up to 33 ft. Additionally voltage categories and power demand changes depending on the vessel type.
