How we work
Our approved technology based on MENCK's deepwater equipment spread creates a reliable subsea foundation to your offshore building.
Together we find the best solution to meet your project requirements. The current range of pile diameters is from 36" to 127" / 5.0 m
Hammers & Spread
The MHU T hammer's designed water depth is 1000 m where it provides the nominal energy. An operating depth beyond 2000 m is currently reached and we are on the way to 3000 m. The unique deepwater power pack completed by umbilical, umbilical winch and compressor have a small footprint on a vessel.
Our equipment is located on several yards worldwide. The main yards are in Germany and Singapore where we can also do the assembling of the equipment.
The equipment is containerized on a high level what makes it easy to transport globally, if necessary.
