thyssenkrupp announced its collaboration with Wilhelmsen, one of the largest maritime products and services provider in the world, to jointly develop Additive Manufacturing enabled commercial solutions for the maritime industry. Under the Memorandum of Agreement signed by both companies, thyssenkrupp and Wilhelmsen’s Marine Products division will collaborate on providing 3D-printed components for maritime vessels, leveraging on thyssenkrupp’s deep expertise in AM alongside Wilhelmsen’s in-depth maritime expertise and direct ongoing experience of developing 3D printing as a service for vessels. The collaboration will also leverage on the capabilities of the recently inaugurated thyssenkrupp Tech Center in Singapore and its Global Additive Manufacturing Tech Center in Mulheim, which has been awarded the Approval of Manufacturer certificate by leading quality assurance and risk management firm DNV GL. The high-level certification, which allows thyssenkrupp to supply metal 3D products for application in maritime and other industrial sectors, further cements the company’s distinctive capabilities to design and fabricate metal parts and components utilizing additive manufacturing.

Joining the collaboration is startup company Ivaldi Group, a technology partner partly owned by Wilhelmsen that utilizes its platform to market and offer 3D products for the maritime industry. This partnership of two globally renowned enterprises – thyssenkrupp and Wilhelmsen – and fast-rising startup Ivaldi bodes well for the burgeoning Additive Manufacturing ecosystem.
