Pelagus 3D and Doosan Enerbility to push 3D printing in Korea

Pelagus 3D, a joint venture company of thyssenkrupp and Wilhelmsen, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Doosan Enerbility to support the further adoption of on-demand 3D printing in Korea’s maritime and offshore industries.

The collaboration brings together Pelagus 3D’s engineering capabilities in maritime additive manufacturing (AM) with Doosan’s Enerbility’s experience in the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) spare parts sector.  Over a three-year period, both parties will work together to enable OEMs in Korea to implement and adopt on-demand manufacturing, to address supply chain issues.

“The MOU signing with Doosan Enerbility marks a pivotal milestone in creating a more resilient and efficient spare parts supply chain,” said Kenlip Ong, Chief Executive Officer, Pelagus 3D.

“This collaboration will drive technological innovation and deliver enhanced value to our network in Korea. The Pelagus Platform will ensure seamless integration and accelerate adoption of AM among OEMs and end users.”

The agreement will also see the two firms collaborate on a variety of initiatives including AM technology exchanges, pilot testing, and adoption of the Pelagus Platform. The Pelagus Platform supports the acquisition and production of on-demand spare parts by providing digital warehouse management and order fulfilment capabilities, connecting OEMs and end users to manufacturing partners.

“Doosan Enerbility has been demonstrating the technological excellence and economic feasibility of its AM business to its wide range of customers in not only the power generation sector, but those in the defence and aerospace sectors as well,” said Yongjin Song, Executive VP of Strategy & Innovation at Doosan Enerbility.

“Under this partnership, we plan to do our utmost to further promote the growth of the AM business and develop new markets.”
