REM-B Hydraulics uses Enerpac pump to enhance lifting safety

Belgium based REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle release powerpack based mostly on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing 1000 tonne, eighty five m high, offshore wind turbine bases throughout quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for worldwide metal development company, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer different to long lengths of hydraulic hoses connected to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m excessive fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for transport offshore requires shackles to attach the turbine base to a three-point lifting frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is finished utilizing a double appearing valve association powered by quayside pump linked by lengthy hoses. Smulders was looking for a simpler and safer method of engaging and releasing the shackles without the necessity for long hoses.
Attached to every leg of the lifting body, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for lengthy hoses by utilizing a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to operate a bi-directional valve linked to a cylinder that moves the pin connecting the shackle. The entire system is contained in a compact steel case with an exterior aerial linking each unit to a wi-fi controller. For increased pressure gauge 10 bar , the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is provided with an efficient electrical motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering distinctive velocity and run time and is designed for remote out of doors areas.
