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

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

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international steel development company, Smulders. Hidden -contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer different to lengthy lengths of hydraulic hoses linked to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m excessive 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 frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is completed utilizing a double acting valve arrangement powered by quayside pump linked by lengthy hoses. Smulders was on the lookout for a simpler and safer method of participating and releasing the shackles with out the necessity for lengthy hoses.
Attached to Whopping 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 entire system is contained in a compact metal case with an exterior 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 equipped with an efficient electric motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering distinctive speed and run time and is designed for remote outdoor places.
