MENCK drives their first 8m top diameter piles on UK North Sea project

The MHU 4400S hammer system that can deliver 4400 kJ of impact energy, has successfully been used in the world’s largest one part driving configuration (8m diameter) to support the installation of the first foundations on the project. The hammer helps to achieve carbon efficiencies by using quieter technology in comparison to the conventional MHU design. Reduction of the project footprint is supported by the integrated system setup which requires minimal personnel to work on the installation.

MENCK’s hammer system will be rented for the duration of the project and supported by MENCK personnel to drive the remaining monopiles to the design depth in the seabed.

This project will help MENCK to bring the world’s biggest hammer and driving configuration to the market and represents one of their largest rental contracts.
