The US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) experts created and tested 3D-printed antennas, arrays, and parts to advance radar technology at sea, improving its maritime navigation and national defense.
France-based classification society Bureau Veritas shake hands with 3D Metal Forge and ship operator PACC Offshore Services Holdings Ltd in order to boost maritime additive manufacturing innovation.
ABS along with Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), POSH, 3D Metalforge and ShipParts.com joined their forces in order to develop 3D printed parts.
Port of Singapore hosted the world’s first CE-Certified 3D printed lifting tool delivery, through the Wilhelmsen thyssenkrupp AM fulfillment platform.
As part of its efforts to remain efficient through technology innovation, MPA Singapore has awarded a total of S$1.625 million to 11 joint industry projects in the areas of maritime digitalization and additive manufacturing for ship and marine parts.
Signing of the Letter of Intent to establish a Joint Venture, ship management company Wilhelmsen Ships Services and German conglomerate thyssenkrupp will collaborate on delivering maritime spare parts using 3D printing.
The US-based classification society, ABS recently informed that successfully completed a successful pilot project using 3D digital models for class surveys. Through this initiative, ABS becomes the first in Industry that accepts 3D models for class surveys.
3D printing of metallic components has significant potential for maritime and offshore industry applications. In this context, the online procurement firm in marine equipment, ShipParts.com, has signed a research collaboration agreement with Singapore’s Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP), and the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) with the aim to prove standards for the certification of metallic components produced by NYP’s Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre (AMIC) for maritime application.
Wilhelmsen announced that it delivered 3D printed parts to Berge Bulk vessel, with scupper plugs being one of the part categories. This delivery is part of a Wilhelmsen’s program for on-demand additive manufacturing, while parts in this program are being monitored in close collaboration with DNV GL.
Keppel Offshore and Marine (Keppel O&M) is using a 3D printing technology to produce high-value components for the offshore industry, with the technology accelerating production times, resulting to projects being quicker completed.
