Past Performance: US Navy

Project: Gantry Crane with Hydraulic Power Unit

RG Group engineered, manufactured and completely upgraded 100 tons Cyclops Gantry Crance with a new HPU and remote touch screen operational electrical controls. The main 30' Bear LOC lifting cylinder was rebuilt and upgraded with a new titanium internal holding system.    

Past Performance: US Air Force

Project: Multiple 1,000 HP Hydraulic Power Units

RG Group furnished the turn-key design, labor, materials, and equipment for 16 massive hydraulic power units. We provided the demolition, fabrication, delivery, and installation of three of those HPUs in 2020. Additionally, RG completed the hot oil flushing of 10 hydraulic systems.    

Past Performance: US Army Corp of Engineers - NY

Project: Diesel Powered Hydraulic Power Units

RG Group engineered and constructed a Skid-mounted Diesel Powered HPU System producing 14 GPM at 4500 PSI with a fixed displacement pump and a Keel Oil Cooler. Additionally, RG Group supplied spare hydraulic hoses, fittings, valves, filters and engine components.  

Past Performance: US Navy

Project: Electro-Magnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) Hydraulic Power Unit:

RG Group designed, manufactured and upgraded a build to spec multiple HPUs to supply pressure for the Nose Gear Launch (NGL) System. Additionally, project included design and fabrication of Bench Test Loop Manifold with First Article Testing for all future Navy Aircraft Carriers.    

Past Performance: US Navy

Project: Design and build hydraulic power units for Gerald Ford Class (CVN-78) Steam Valve

RG Group engineered and manufactured the four Hydraulic Power Units that operate the main Engine Steam Valve on the US Navy’s Gerald Ford Class Aircraft Carrier. The system was specifically designed to meet strict requirements for performance in shock and vibration scenarios while eliminating EMI interference. The hydraulic system is a self-contained HPU with pump, electric motor, stainless steel reservoir, filtration, pressure and directional control valves, accumulator and a backup hand pump for emergency operation. These RG HPUs are currently in service and in the future will be installed on the new John F. Kennedy (CVN-79).  

Past Performance: US Navy

Project: Design and build High Capacity Along-side Sea Base Sustainment (HiCASS)

The RG Group Engineering Team worked with the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to provide a complete Hydraulic System for the High Capacity Along-side Sea Base Sustainment (HiCASS) Program. This system included a motion compensating crane used to transport cargo containers from ship to ship at sea. This 1000 HP Hydraulic System moved the container at the end of the crane up to 7 feet vertically and in any multiple axis to keep the container aligned with the deck of the ship during all phases of ship-to-ship transfer up to and including Sea State 4. This RG solution exceeded all government requirements on budget and ahead of schedule.  

Past Performance: US Army

Project: Design and build Medium Mine Protected Vehicle (MMPV) – Ramp Hydraulic System

RG Group developed, tested and delivered a complete hydraulic system to operate the Rear Ramp on the Medium Mine Protected Vehicle (MMPV) - a variant of the MRAP used specifically to deploy EOD robots in the field. The system consisted of a Hydraulic Power Unit (high HP DC motor, pump, pressure and directional control valves, reservoir, filtration, electrical power cables, hydraulic cylinder, and connecting hose assemblies. RG completed this incredible task from design to fully field tested with DCMA approval in only 16 weeks. The system had specific design characteristics that allowed operation even if the vehicle was in a rollover condition, which was critical to the safety of the personnel. This RG solution is used widely in the Middle East by US military personnel with hundreds of systems delivered in a span of only 18 months.  

Past Performance: US Marine Corps

Project: Design and build the Hydraulic Control System for IED Mine Roller System

The RG Group designed, tested and delivered a complete Hydraulic and Control System to operate the IED Mine Roller System used extensively in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect US military personnel. The system consisted of a Hydraulic Power Unit (high HP DC motor, pump, pressure directional control valves, reservoir, filtration), electrical power and control cable, hand-held pendant to operate the system from the cab of the drive vehicle, hydraulic cylinders, and multiple hose assemblies. RG worked to deliver the systems from paper to finished product and approved for use within 12 weeks - receiving a bonus from USMC for early delivery! The first systems were delivered to Iraq in December of 2006 and immediately put into service.
