REM-B Hydraulics uses Enerpac pump to improve lifting safety

Belgium based mostly REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle release 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 during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for worldwide steel construction firm, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer different to long lengths of hydraulic hoses linked to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m excessive 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 related by lengthy hoses. Smulders was in search of an easier and safer method of engaging and releasing the shackles with out the necessity for lengthy hoses.

The complete system is contained in a compact metallic case with an external aerial linking each unit to a wireless controller. For elevated security, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is supplied 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 distant outside places.
