REM-B Hydraulics uses Enerpac pump to enhance lifting safety

Belgium based mostly 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, eighty five m excessive, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international metal development company, Smulders. ตัววัดแรงดันน้ำ -contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer alternative 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 delivery 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 appearing valve association powered by quayside pump related by long hoses. Smulders was looking for a less complicated and safer methodology of engaging and releasing the shackles without the necessity for lengthy hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting body, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for lengthy hoses through the use of a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to function a bi-directional valve linked 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 security, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is equipped with an efficient electrical motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering exceptional velocity and run time and is designed for distant outside areas.
