Energy and Renewables
As the world moves towards a greener and more sustainable future, it is clear the renewable energy sector will become a larger focus when it comes to engineering and manufacturing. At Camloc, we’re proud to be able to support these essential efforts. Motion control solutions are an essential part of energy and renewables projects. These solutions can be found in wind turbine maintenance access to anaerobic digestion plant projects. These solutions have a crucial role to play in helping the industry to deliver cleaner, more sustainable energy solutions. Having access to the highest-quality and most innovative solutions is key to a successful renewable energy project.
Our clients work with us because they understand that we specialise in the design and creation of made-to-order products, and that we have full control of the manufacturing process from our UK base. Access to such advanced facilities allows us to maintain our high and exacting standards when faced with the challenges imposed by the operating environment on equipment used in the energy and renewables sector.
Working with industry-based design engineers, our team can develop applications that focus on the diverse needs of the equipment they’re being used in. When no two projects are the same, there’s no reason that your solutions should be either. It is this kind of innovative and experimental thinking that has our clients wanting to work with us time and time again.
We understand the unique challenges of working within an industry that is facing near-constant advancement and international interest, which is why we take the time to consider the risks or consequences of each solution. We are trusted by our customers to deliver solutions that look after their teams. This could be anything from solutions which allow access to wind turbines in the North Sea to those which securely hold open electrical enclosures.

Where gas springs can be found within the energy and renewables sector
With the increasing dependence on the energy and renewables sectors, it has become clear that gas springs and dampers have a wide variety of uses within motion control solutions.
- Wind turbine maintenance access doors (Hydraulic dampers – Cam-Shoc)
- Solar panel wind dampers
- Offshore personnel hoist systems (Hydraulic dampers – Cam-Shoc)
- Waste to energy equipment and conveyors (Fixed force compression gas strut – Swift & Sure)
- Recycling plant and equipment
- Anaerobic digestion plant
- Electrical enclosure access (Safety locking gas strut with shroud – Econoloc)
How our products work in the energy and renewables sector:
At Camloc, we understand the vast number of potential applications that can be found within the energy and renewables sector. We have taken the time to ensure we can offer a wide range of gas springs and hydraulic dampers that enable simple yet effective design and manufacturing, meaning we can provide a wide variety of innovative solutions to meet the specific needs of our customers.
Keeping equipment running in the harshest conditions and ensuring the safety of operators is an essential requirement for the energy and renewables sector. To help ensure the safety and protection of operators, our range of hydraulic dampers, Cam-Shoc, are often found controlling and absorbing the kinetic motion of the equipment they’re used in.
For example, when creating a solution suitable for use operating on North Sea wind turbines, protection for maintenance personnel and ensuring their safe access is paramount. Our hydraulic dampers can be configured for type, damping characteristics, materials and size for each application, whether this is damping the motion of an access door or enabling personnel access the turbine platform itself. The damper absorbs wind energy to provide a smooth, controlled motion.
Safety Locking Gas Struts with Shroud
Gaining access to equipment and ensuring operator safety is vital in energy and renewable plants, and the ability to adapt applications to each customer’s specific needs is critical. Out Econoloc range of safety locking gas struts with shroud are often used in these environments. Whether it’s access to small-scale waste or anaerobic digestion plants, or electrical enclosures for large scale energy plants, they provide a safe, reliable way to access equipment to protect the operator from potential injury in the event of overload or misuse.
At Camloc Motion Control, all our products are designed to meet our customers’ exacting needs and standards, and our team of experienced engineers will work with you to provide gas spring and hydraulic damper solutions. We pride ourselves on our service to customers, with design engineers on hand to work with you using the latest CAD/CAE techniques. Recognising that no two applications are the same, we provide engineered solutions to meet your exact requirements.
