REM-B Hydraulics makes use of Enerpac pump to improve lifting security

Belgium based REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle launch powerpack based mostly on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing a thousand tonne, eighty five m high, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international steel development company, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer various to lengthy lengths of hydraulic hoses linked to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m excessive fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for shipping offshore requires shackles to connect the turbine base to a three-point lifting frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is done utilizing a double appearing valve arrangement powered by quayside pump connected by long hoses. Smulders was in search of a simpler and safer technique of participating and releasing the shackles without the need for lengthy hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting frame, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for lengthy hoses by using a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to operate a bi-directional valve linked to a cylinder that strikes the pin connecting the shackle. Expert is contained in a compact steel case with an exterior aerial linking each unit to a wireless controller. For elevated security, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is provided with an environment friendly electrical motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering exceptional velocity and run time and is designed for distant out of doors locations.
