SEMBCORP MARINE’S 3D PRINTING OF CONSTRUCTION, REPAIR PARTS GETS QUALITY ASSURANCE

Sembcorp Marine’s 3D-printing procedures and specifications for components used in its construction and repair projects have received endorsement from quality assurance and risk management company DNV GL.

SembMarine president and CEO Wong Weng Sun said: “The DNV GL certifications help us work towards a 3D-printing regime that lets SembMarine custom-make components, improve their design and quality, and mitigate external procurement constraints on cost, lead time and availability – for instance, parts for a repair job that may be expensive, obsolete, not in stock or no longer in production.”
