REM-B Hydraulics uses Enerpac pump to improve lifting security

Belgium based mostly REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle launch powerpack based on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing one thousand tonne, 85 m high, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for worldwide steel building company, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer various to long lengths of hydraulic hoses linked to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m excessive fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for delivery offshore requires shackles to attach the turbine base to a three-point lifting body and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is completed using a double acting valve association powered by quayside pump connected by lengthy hoses. Smulders was looking for a less complicated and safer method of participating and releasing the shackles with out the necessity for long hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting frame, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for long hoses through the use of a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to operate a bi-directional valve connected to a cylinder that strikes the pin connecting the shackle. The whole system is contained in a compact metallic case with an exterior aerial linking each unit to a wi-fi controller. For elevated safety, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is supplied with an environment friendly electrical motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering exceptional speed and run time and is designed for remote outside places.
