SembMarine in tie-up to transform offshore and marine sector

The company signed yesterday a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with DNV GL, A*Star’s Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC). The partners will apply laser-aided additive manufacturing (AM) to fabricate large-scale structures for newbuild offshore and marine constructions in a project that will begin by the year’s end. This technology gives great flexibility to translate designs into actual products and has the potential to save on material costs and reduce production lead-time, said SembMarine president and CEO Wong Weng Sun in a speech at the MOU signing.
