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 on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing 1000 tonne, 85 m excessive, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international metal building firm, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer different to lengthy lengths of hydraulic hoses connected to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m high fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for delivery offshore requires shackles to connect the turbine base to a three-point lifting frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is completed utilizing a double appearing valve association powered by quayside pump connected by long hoses. Smulders was in search of a much less complicated and safer method of partaking and releasing the shackles without the need for long hoses.
Attached to every 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 function a bi-directional valve linked to a cylinder that strikes the pin connecting the shackle. The entire system is contained in a compact metallic case with an exterior aerial linking every 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 equipped with an environment friendly electric motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering distinctive velocity and run time and is designed for distant outdoor places.
