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

Belgium primarily based 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 excessive, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international metal construction company, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer alternative to long lengths of hydraulic hoses connected to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m excessive fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for shipping offshore requires shackles to connect the turbine base to a three-point lifting body and crane. Engaging and releasing เกจวัดแรงดันเชื้อเพลิง is completed utilizing a double appearing valve arrangement powered by quayside pump linked by lengthy hoses. Smulders was in search of a much less complicated and safer technique of partaking and releasing the shackles without the need for lengthy hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting frame, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for lengthy hoses by utilizing a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to operate a bi-directional valve linked to a cylinder that strikes the pin connecting the shackle. The complete system is contained in a compact steel case with an external aerial linking every 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 electric motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering exceptional speed and run time and is designed for remote outdoor places.
