Cochran Marine Announces New Freightliner Shore Power System Designed to Eliminate Carbon Emissions

(PRZOOM - Press & Newswire) —  Seattle, WA, United States, 2010-04-26 - Cochran Marine, the innovator behind the first fully automated Cruise Ship Shore Power system, has transformed its proven technology into a high functioning, cost competitive alternative to current freightliner cold ironing systems


Growing concern regarding air quality and the environmental impacts of our Ports is causing freight shipping emissions to become a hot topic issue across the globe. Cochran Marine’s Freight Shore Power solution leverages the full weight of their Cruise Ship Shore Power expertise, providing a full-service turnkey solution for ports around the world.

Cochran’s automated system makes their Freight Shore Power offering considerably different from conventional cold-ironing. Conventional systems do not have the technology necessary to stabilize the electrical voltage being delivered to a ship. Often the electrical current coming into the ship from the shore will fluctuate significantly, creating additional wear on electrical equipment that is compensating for the difference in voltages. Cochran’s Freight Shore Power system is able to easily monitor and self-adjust to ensure that the voltage being delivered to the ship is consistent, reducing wear on equipment.

Cochran’s automation system is also able to monitor power consumption while the ship is plugged in, creating an easy tracking system for ports that have more than one shipping company connecting to the same shore power station. Tracking consumption also provides a tool for Ports to understand the impact that shore power is having on their carbon footprint. Cochran Marine’s system makes carbon reduction calculations easy and provides information necessary to obtain additional funding and document results for air quality compliance issues.

Cochran Marine’s Freight Shore Power solution is the logical next step in the evolution of shore power, providing a reliable, easy to manage, environmentally responsible solution to seaport air quality problems.

The foundation of Cochran Marine’s Freight Shore Power system is their Cruise Ship Shore Power technology. Cochran Marine ( is known throughout the world as the leading provider of Cruise Ship Shore Power. Cochran’s Shore Power system allows cruise ships to enter ports, plug-in to the electrical grid and turn off their diesel burning engines without ever losing power, providing a safe, customer friendly, reliable way to reduce harmful Green House Gas Emissions while docked. The proprietary and patent pending design of the Cochran Shore Power system includes everything from ship power synchronization and monitoring to a unique cable delivery system.
