How we work
The mono pile is the preferred foundation method for wind farms with special requirements on pile handling and adjustment.
High energy and large pile size installations are supported using MENCK pile driving equipment.
Hammers & Spread
A hammer with energy from 100kJ up to 3500 kJ is available in our rental fleet. All additional equipment like a Power pack, air compressor, hose winch, hoses and umbilical are available to provide the whole spread for your operation.
Also, pile diameters above 6 m / 152" can be driven.
Our equipment is located on several yards worldwide. The main yards are in Germany and Singapore where we also can do the assembling of the equipment.
The equipment is containerized on a high level what makes it easy to transport globally if necessary.
