REM-B Hydraulics uses Enerpac pump to improve lifting security

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

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international steel building firm, Smulders. เพรสเชอร์เกจ4นิ้ว -contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer alternative to long lengths of hydraulic hoses connected to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m high fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for shipping offshore requires shackles to connect the turbine base to a three-point lifting body and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is finished using a double performing valve arrangement powered by quayside pump linked by lengthy hoses. Smulders was looking for a less complicated and safer technique of engaging and releasing the shackles with out the need for lengthy hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting body, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for long hoses by using a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to function a bi-directional valve related to a cylinder that moves the pin connecting the shackle. The whole system is contained in a compact steel case with an exterior aerial linking each unit to a wi-fi controller. For increased security, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is supplied with an efficient electric motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering exceptional pace and run time and is designed for remote outdoor locations.
