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

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 a thousand tonne, 85 m excessive, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international steel construction company, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer various to long lengths of hydraulic hoses related to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m excessive 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 body and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is done utilizing a double appearing valve association powered by quayside pump related by long hoses. Smulders was on the lookout for an easier and safer methodology of engaging and releasing the shackles with out the necessity for lengthy hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting body, 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 whole system is contained in a compact metallic case with an exterior aerial linking each unit to a wi-fi controller. For increased 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 distinctive velocity and run time and is designed for distant outside locations.
