MENCK expands Offshore Footprint for Renewable and Oil & Gas - The MHU 3200iS for Saipem will be ready soon
News Date : 26.08.2016
After 29 years of successful operation, we are proud to announce the planned upgrade of Saipem's hydraulic hammer MHU 3000-02 which MENCK delivered together with the MHU 3000-01 in the 1980s.
Existing parts of the MHU 3000-02 will form the fundamentals for the newly upgraded hammer. The elements will be modified to correspond with new components, resulting in state of the art equipment. After completion of the upgrade, the newly formed MHU 3200iS will be able to operate underwater, with a weight of around 400 tons and maximum energy of 3200 kJ, able to drive foundation piles up to 108". Optionally, the MHU 3200iS can be set up to operate with MENCKs specially designed 6.5m piling equipment.
