DNV GL boosts investment in 3D competence for AM

The new centre, which is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), will focus on developing competence including qualification, certification and training for additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing.

DNV GL aims to enable the adoption of this new technology in the O&M sector by providing the industry with technical standards and guidelines for qualifying and certifying AM equipment, processes, products, materials and personnel.

The facility aims to become DNV GL’s global competence and service delivery centre for assurance and advisory services in 3D printing and allied technologies for ship, offshore and oil & gas industry sectors, and has the potential to enhance Singapore’s vision to be positioned as a world leader in this technology and be recognized as an integrated global additive manufacturing hub.

DNV GL will invest in competence development and will be working with local research institutes and industry partners through joint collaborations to advance the use of AM.
