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

Belgium based mostly REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle launch powerpack based on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing one 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 lengthy lengths of hydraulic hoses linked to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m high fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for shipping offshore requires shackles to attach the turbine base to a three-point lifting frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is completed utilizing a double performing valve association powered by quayside pump linked by long hoses. Smulders was looking for an easier and safer technique of participating and releasing the shackles without the necessity 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 operate a bi-directional valve linked to a cylinder that strikes the pin connecting the shackle. The whole system is contained in a compact metal case with an external aerial linking every unit to a wireless controller. For elevated safety, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing Monetize , 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 out of doors locations.
