Wilhelmsen says that both its 3D Printing project and Timm Smart Ropes have been shortlisted as finalists for the Lloyd's List Asia Pacific Awards 2019.

Nominated in the Excellence in Supply Chain Management category, the 3D printing program aims to digitalise maritime supply chains. Partnering with Ivaldi Group to deploy additive manufacturing, with a dedicated facility in Singapore, the local micro factory offers on-demand production. Providing 3D printed parts to selected partners as part of an early adopters’ programme in Singapore port, 3D Printing of marine parts enables reduction of both costs and environmental footprint while increasing service capabilities.

Also selected as a finalist, in the Excellence in Data and Technology Innovation category, the Timm Smart Ropes system offers exact load information, in real-time, simplifying vessel mooring. Helping to ensure mooring ropes have the right tension, in the right place, at the right time, all the time, the system makes over tensioned lines, premature wear of ropes and in the worst-case scenario unexpected rope failures a thing of the past.

The awards take place in October in Singapore
