REM-B Hydraulics uses Enerpac pump to enhance lifting safety

Belgium primarily 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 1000 tonne, eighty five m excessive, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international metal construction company, Smulders. ไดอะแฟรม ซีล -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 connect the turbine base to a three-point lifting frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is finished using a double acting valve association powered by quayside pump linked by lengthy hoses. Smulders was in search of an easier and safer method of engaging and releasing the shackles without the necessity for lengthy hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting frame, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for lengthy hoses through the use of a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to operate a bi-directional valve linked 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 elevated security, 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 exceptional speed and run time and is designed for remote outdoor places.
