Belgium based mostly 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, eighty five m high, offshore wind turbine bases throughout quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international steel development firm, Smulders. The self-contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer different to lengthy 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 attach the turbine base to a three-point lifting frame and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is completed utilizing a double appearing valve arrangement powered by quayside pump connected by lengthy hoses. Smulders was on the lookout for a simpler and safer methodology of partaking and releasing the shackles without the necessity for lengthy hoses.
Attached to every leg of the lifting frame, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for long hoses by using a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to operate a bi-directional valve connected to a cylinder that strikes the pin connecting the shackle. The entire system is contained in a compact metal case with an exterior aerial linking each unit to a wi-fi controller. For elevated เกจวัดแรงดันภาษาอังกฤษ , 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 outside places.
