MENCK supplied an MHU 2400S hydraulic hammer system for the challenging pile driving project of the foundations for the Padma Bridge, currently the longest bridge in South Asia. After completion of the bridge foundations, a follow-up project for the parallel running energy supply road was necessary.

After almost three million blows, the 60t hydraulic drive unit of the customer's owned hydraulic hammer was replaced. For the almost uninterrupted operation on the construction site, this was delivered by MENCK Logistic using the world's second largest cargo aircraft - the Antonov 124 - from Kaltenkirchen (Germany) to Dhaka (Bangladesh) within one day. During regular project-integrated maintenance work, the drive unit was installed on the MHU 2400S hydraulic hammer in record of time, supported by the MENCK service team, and was thus able to make another significant contribution to achieving the next project milestone.
