Belgium based REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle release powerpack based on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing one thousand tonne, eighty five m high, offshore wind turbine bases throughout quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international steel building 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 shipping offshore requires shackles to connect the turbine base to a three-point lifting body and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is done utilizing a double acting valve arrangement powered by quayside pump connected by lengthy hoses. Smulders was on the lookout for an easier and safer technique of participating and releasing the shackles with out the need for long hoses.
Attached to เครื่องมือที่ใช้วัดความดันโลหิต of the lifting body, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for lengthy hoses by using a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to function a bi-directional valve connected 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 each unit to a wireless 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 electrical motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering exceptional speed and run time and is designed for distant outside locations.
