Marine Facilities

Often electrical systems for marine facilities have to be replaced at least once during the service life of a dock or marina, but we believe the electrical facilities should be designed to have the same service life as the structure. Salt air is extremely hard on electrical systems, so we use sealed stainless steel equipment enclosures, non-metallic raceways, and other materials that have been proven to resist the corrosive effect of the marine environment and extend the service life of the equipment.

Industrial and Commercial loading and offloading facilities require low glare lighting to avoid affecting the night vision of both vessel captains and equipment operators, while still providing sufficient light to operate on shore. Placement of light poles is critical to keep the operating area clear for equipment and vessel mooring lines. We have addressed these concerns with effective solutions on multiple projects.

We have also provided the electrical design for the City & Borough of Juneau Port Visitor Center and Port Customs/Office Buildings. The design included new services, power, lighting, site lighting, fire alarm, computer network wiring, and special systems.

Morris Engineering Group, Inc. designs electrical systems for wharfs, docks, fuel offloading facilities, marinas, marina fuel dispensing facilities, and other marine structures. When we have encountered situations where market products do not suit the owner’s needs, we have provided innovative designs for new products. Some examples include harbor power pedestals and very-low glare lighting.

Our designs include 480V, three phase shore power for larger vessels, standby power generation, power distribution, power and controls for hydraulic systems, lighting, security systems including video surveillance and access control, fire alarm, power pedestals for smaller vessels, site lighting, dock lighting, and high mast lighting.
