Congratulations to Charles Parsons, Port Electrical Mechanic at the Port of Los Angeles.
"Your key interlock system allows our mechanics and the ship engineers to deliver 3Mwh-4Mwh of power ( 900A at 11KV) to these massive ships safely every week which helps keep the air cleaner in southern California…. Thanks Kirk Key!!" (Charles Parsons)
Trapped key interlocks increase safety of electrical connections in shore power applications
North Canton, Ohio (January 29, 2015) – KIRK® interlocking products provide safe electrical access during cold ironing, ensuring that ship power cables are properly coupled to shore power junction boxes before energizing. Trapped key access interlocks and key exchange units ensure that users follow a pre-determined sequence of operation when connecting to land based power while in port.
