How we work

MENCK offers a full range of equipment for the installation of anchor piles. For us, it's not only driving the piles, it's about creating a successful solution from the engineering to the design report of the pile installation.

Equipment, engineering, handling and pile stabilization can be provided by our experienced team.

Hammers & Spread

Our rental fleet hammers provide an energy range from 100kJ up to 3500 kJ.

All additional equipment like a power pack, air compressor, hose winch, hoses and umbilical is available to provide the whole spread for your operation. 


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 highly containerized which makes it easy to transport globally, if necessary.
