Since 1868 MENCK has been providing foundations, anchor and mooring points to the on- and offshore industry. We have been leading the industry for over 135 years, providing equipment and know-how to our clients.
MENCK’s core competencies are:
- designing and manufacturing pile driving systems
- performing feasibility studies on your anchoring or foundation project
- organizing and managing the project, drawing from decades of experience
- preparing and operating MENCK or customer owned equipment, on location, onshore
or offshore through an extensive worldwide service network
Today our greatest aptitude is the design and manufacture of hydraulic hammers for driving large piles. Our equipment is approved for operations exceeding 2,200 metres (7,000 ft) of water and prepared for 3,000 metres (10,000 ft) and we manufactured the strongest hydraulic hammer in the world with 3,500kJ. We routinely drive large piles of 5 metres (196 in) in diameter for the newest generation of windmills and we are developing solutions for even larger piles to meet further requirements.
Driven pile anchors and foundations are the most reliable technology available on the market, but that does not stop us from carrying out further research and development to find even better solutions for our customers. MENCK belongs to the Acteon Group Ltd. based in the UK.
