Belgium based mostly REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle launch powerpack primarily based on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing 1000 tonne, 85 m high, offshore wind turbine bases throughout quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international 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 pressure gauge fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for shipping offshore requires shackles to attach the turbine base to a three-point lifting frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is completed utilizing a double performing valve arrangement powered by quayside pump connected by lengthy hoses. Smulders was looking for a less complicated and safer methodology of partaking and releasing the shackles with out the need for long hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting frame, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for lengthy hoses through the use of a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to operate a bi-directional valve connected to a cylinder that moves the pin connecting the shackle. The entire system is contained in a compact metal case with an external aerial linking every unit to a wi-fi controller. For increased security, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is provided with an efficient electric motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering exceptional pace and run time and is designed for remote out of doors areas.
