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 1000 tonne, 85 m excessive, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international steel construction company, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer alternative to lengthy 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 attach the turbine base to a three-point lifting body and crane. Engaging and releasing pressure gauge octa is completed using a double performing valve association powered by quayside pump connected by lengthy hoses. Smulders was looking for a less complicated and safer methodology of engaging and releasing the shackles with out the need for long hoses.
Attached to every leg of the lifting body, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for long hoses by utilizing a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to function a bi-directional valve linked to a cylinder that strikes the pin connecting the shackle. pressure gauge is contained in a compact metal case with an exterior aerial linking every unit to a wi-fi controller. For elevated safety, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is supplied with an efficient electrical motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering distinctive pace and run time and is designed for remote out of doors areas.
