Bureau Veritas and MolyWorks agree 3D printing MoU

Bureau Veritas (BV) and MolyWorks Materials Corporation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Singapore aimed at promoting additive manufacturing, more commonly known as 3D printing, as a method of improving sustainability in the maritime, offshore, and renewable energy sectors.

The MoU will see both parties collaborate in efforts to support sustainable business opportunities, including maritime innovation, pilot trials and other initiatives leveraging the technology.

MolyWorks’ R&D and production metal powder manufacturing and recycling facility in Singapore features a foundry offering a wide range of metal powders, including custom alloys/small batches for research purposes and high volume for large-scale industrial production.

“MolyWorks is delighted and honoured to formally partner and collaborate with BV Singapore to jointly promote additive manufacturing and other emerging business opportunities to the maritime and marine companies, tapping into MolyWorks’ metal powder production and recycling capabilities and BV’s green services,” said Phil Ward, CEO, MolyWorks Materials Corporation.

This announcement follows BV’s recent opening of a Singapore-based Centre of Excellence – named innovation Centre for Alternative and Renewable Energy (iCARE) – by which the class society aims to drive an increase in collaborative efforts to implement, measure and achieve sustainability objectives.

“Bureau Veritas sees this partnership directly supporting both organisations and the industry as a whole,” said David Barrow, Vice President, Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore, South Asia Zone.

“Both organisations are clearly aligned in their vision and strategy for success in this area. This is a great example of industry collaboration to ensure that we can achieve industry ambitions relating to innovation and green agendas.”
