This industry project involves marine digitalization and additive manufacturing of ships and ship parts.


"As the world's busiest transshipment center, Singapore must adopt technology to ensure that the business remains highly efficient. We believe that solutions that work in our busy waters may also work in other parts of the world. Therefore, we actively cooperate with the industry , And provide an environment needed for the development of innovative marine ecosystems,” commented Chee Hong Tat, Senior Minister of State for Transport and Foreign Affairs.


   Of these 11 projects, 5 will address business resilience and productivity requirements. They are scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2021, with the purpose of changing the way they operate under the new normal in the post-covid era.


   The other six projects will consider the use of additive manufacturing technology in Singapore, making it a center for "just in time" marine component supply. The consortium behind these projects aims to deepen Singapore’s additive manufacturing capabilities and test the use of at least 26 3D printed parts on ships registered in Singapore to test the feasibility of these parts. These projects are expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2022, bringing greater efficiency and cost savings to the industry.


   Earlier this year, the Maritime Management Association, Singapore Shipping Association (SSA) and National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) initiated a joint call for proposals in these two areas, and received 40 proposals from the maritime industry.


   The 11 selected projects are co-funded by the Maritime Innovation and Technology (MINT) Fund of the Maritime Management Association. The fund aims to support maritime companies in digitalization and experimentation of technology, and help Singapore develop into an excellent maritime R&D and technology solution center.
