WOW! You're wiring your bus for 600 volts!
But where will you get the female cord cap to match that beauty? (I have a couple at work, but can't sell them.)
NEMA-standard connectors for every voltage and every current rating have slightly different pins. A four-pin twist-lock for 208 volts, 3 hot phases and a ground with no neutral will have different pins than a four-pin twist lock for 120/240 volts with two hots, a neutral and and ground. This prevents people from plugging cords into the wrong outlet and blowing up equipment with too much or too little voltage.
Of course, if you can find a matching cap for the end of your shoreline, you could make a one-off set-up just for you. It would be safer to have the proper female-male connectors than having a suicide shoreline like Bansil. Just don't mix your equipment with anyone else. Don't let them plug their 600 volt supply cable into your bus.
