REM-B Hydraulics makes use of Enerpac pump to enhance lifting security

Belgium based REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle launch powerpack based mostly on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing a thousand tonne, 85 m high, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for worldwide steel construction company, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer various 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 transport offshore requires shackles to connect the turbine base to a three-point lifting body and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is done using a double performing valve association powered by quayside pump linked by lengthy hoses. Smulders was in search of an easier and safer methodology of partaking and releasing the shackles with out the need for long hoses.
Attached to เกจ์แรงดัน of the lifting body, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for lengthy hoses by utilizing 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 metallic case with an external aerial linking each unit to a wi-fi controller. For elevated safety, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is provided 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 locations.
