REM-B Hydraulics uses Enerpac pump to improve lifting security

Belgium based mostly 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 high, offshore wind turbine bases throughout quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international steel construction firm, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer alternative to long lengths of hydraulic hoses related to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m excessive 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 performing valve arrangement powered by quayside pump linked by long hoses. Smulders was on the lookout for a much less complicated and safer method of participating and releasing the shackles with out the need for lengthy hoses.
Attached to pressure gauge หน้าปัด 4 นิ้ว of the lifting body, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for long hoses by utilizing a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to operate a bi-directional valve related to a cylinder that moves the pin connecting the shackle. The complete system is contained in a compact metal case with an exterior aerial linking every 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 provided with an efficient electric motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering distinctive pace and run time and is designed for remote out of doors areas.
