REM-B Hydraulics uses Enerpac pump to improve lifting security

On demand based REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle release powerpack primarily based on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing one thousand tonne, eighty five m high, offshore wind turbine bases throughout quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for worldwide metal development company, Smulders. Banned -contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer alternative to lengthy lengths of hydraulic hoses linked to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m high fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for delivery offshore requires shackles to attach the turbine base to a three-point lifting body and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is finished utilizing a double acting valve association powered by quayside pump linked by lengthy hoses. Smulders was looking for a simpler and safer methodology of engaging and releasing the shackles without the necessity for long hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting body, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for long 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. The complete system is contained in a compact metal case with an external aerial linking every 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 equipped with an efficient electrical motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering exceptional velocity and run time and is designed for distant out of doors areas.
