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

Belgium based REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle release powerpack based on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing 1000 tonne, 85 m high, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international metal development firm, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer various to long lengths of hydraulic hoses connected to a quayside pump.
Lifting Cancel anytime 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 finished using a double performing valve association powered by quayside pump connected by lengthy hoses. Smulders was in search of an easier and safer technique of participating and releasing the shackles without the need for lengthy hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting body, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for long hoses by utilizing a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to function a bi-directional valve connected to a cylinder that moves the pin connecting the shackle. The entire system is contained in a compact steel 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 exceptional velocity and run time and is designed for distant outside areas.
