At the end ot the sixties Menck started to construct steam driven offshore-hammers.   The first was called “MRBS 1500”. In 1976 Menck, was able to show the biggest steam-hammer so far , the MRBS 12500, in action. When the company Menck&Hambrock stopped to exist in 1978, the new company Menck Gmbh started to sell the old piling plants and hammers first. But soon there were special offshore-hammers to offer. The so called  MHU´s (Menck Hydraulik Hammer Underwater), were used for the installation of deep water platforms upon pile founded jackets. These hammers got very successful.  The possible water  depth got deeper and deeper (1988 MHU 1000 540 m depth, 1989 MHU 400 T 1000 m depth), and today there are depths of 2000 m or more possible.                                                       

In 2007 new brochures were published. Here a selection:
