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

Belgium based mostly 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 excessive, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international steel building company, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer alternative 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 transport offshore requires shackles to connect the turbine base to a three-point lifting frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is done using a double performing valve association powered by quayside pump related by lengthy hoses. Smulders was looking for an easier and safer technique of partaking and releasing the shackles without the necessity for long hoses.
Attached to every leg of the lifting frame, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for lengthy hoses through the use of a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to function a bi-directional valve related to a cylinder that strikes the pin connecting the shackle. Jackpot is contained in a compact steel case with an exterior aerial linking every unit to a wi-fi controller. For elevated security, 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 pace and run time and is designed for distant outside places.
