REM-B Hydraulics uses Enerpac pump to improve lifting security

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

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for worldwide metal building company, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer different to long lengths of hydraulic hoses related to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m high 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 frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is done using a double performing valve arrangement powered by quayside pump connected by lengthy hoses. Smulders was looking for a less complicated and safer methodology of participating and releasing the shackles without the need for long hoses.
Attached to every 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 function a bi-directional valve linked to a cylinder that moves the pin connecting the shackle. The whole system is contained in a compact steel case with an exterior aerial linking every unit to a wireless controller. For increased security, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is supplied with an environment friendly electrical motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering exceptional pace and run time and is designed for remote outdoor locations.
