"The hand of the injured was still between tool and hammer housing as the hydraulic working process was triggered" reads the final report that was dated June 7th, 2008. An accident has occurred that has left a MENCK employee injured, unable to continue his shift and to attend to this next shift the following day.

"It is unacceptable that incidents like this happen", Fabian Hippe says, Managing Director at MENCK GmbH, and goes on "There is no reason why we can't have an incident-free workplace for our people, independent of what we do and where we are."

MENCK has a strong focus on safety fully supported by its shareholder Acteon Group and continuously caters to the system and training to ensure improvement and awareness at all times. "Training of our employees, proper preparation and assessment of the works we do and integrated mitigation measures combined with the professional supervision of the tasks on hand are the four pillars that support and ensure our safety culture today", Dr. Eckhard Zamboni says, HSE Management Lead at MENCK who together with Dagmar Plöhn, HSE Manager at MENCK GmbH and her counterpart Mohamed Syafiq Bin Mohamed Noor at MENCK Pte in Singapore form the MENCK Group HSE Team and support in-house and field operations.

"This is a significant milestone on our road to continuous safety for our employees, that we could not have made without the commitment and dedication of all of our employees. We will continue this journey to ensure that all of us return safely back home from every job we do", Fabian says.

TUEV Rheinland re-certified MENCK's ISO9001 quality management system in December 2017.

At the same time, we successfully raised our quality standard to the 2015 revision of hte norm. These new guidelines will enable us even more to develop and implement product and service solutions to satisfy our customer's needs and expectations.

Please have a look at our QHSE section for more details on how we at MENCK understand quality.

As with last year, MENCK’s hydraulic giants have left footprints in the Irish Sea, once more proving that we are an expert and reliable partner on complex offshore wind farm projects. Two of our fleet’s largest hammers were deployed on Van Oord’s AEOLUS and SVANEN vessels to install 87 monopile foundations with outer diameters of 5.7 m and 6.2 m for the Walney Extension wind farm, located about 31 kilometers southwest of the Isle of Man.

Even sophisticated requirements like changing pile diameters on the fly, and underwater piling proved to be no challenge for our team and equipment, so that within less than four months, all foundations were successfully installed. The completion of the Extension resulted into the world’s largest offshore windfarm with 207 turbines, supplying nearly 600.000 UK homes with 660MW of green energy.

MENCK GmbH has established over four decades of proven capability relating to operation within the offshore market, which includes unprecedented engineering and project management knowledge coupled with an extensive service portfolio and supported by strong experience in pile driving.
