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

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for worldwide metal building firm, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer various to lengthy lengths of hydraulic hoses connected to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m excessive fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for transport offshore requires shackles to attach the turbine base to a three-point lifting frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is finished using a double acting valve arrangement powered by quayside pump linked by long hoses. เพชเชอร์เกจ was looking for a much less complicated and safer methodology of partaking and releasing the shackles without the need for long hoses.
Attached to every leg of the lifting frame, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for long hoses through the use of a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to operate a bi-directional valve linked to a cylinder that strikes the pin connecting the shackle. The entire system is contained in a compact metallic case with an exterior 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 provided with an efficient electrical motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering distinctive velocity and run time and is designed for distant outdoor areas.
