pressure gauge น้ำ 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 one thousand tonne, eighty five m high, offshore wind turbine bases throughout quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for worldwide steel development 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 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 the shackles is done using a double appearing valve arrangement powered by quayside pump connected by lengthy hoses. Smulders was in search of a simpler and safer methodology of engaging and releasing the shackles without the need for long hoses.
Attached to each 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 moves the pin connecting the shackle. The complete system is contained in a compact steel case with an exterior aerial linking every unit to a wireless controller. For increased security, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is provided with an environment friendly 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.
