Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems, a branch of German multinational engineering group Thyssenkrupp, and Singapore’s Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore additive manufacturing and data analytics for naval applications.

Under this agreement, which was signed in the German port city of Kiel, the partners will seek to produce and qualify 3D printed spare parts. Such parts will be tested on submarines, including the newly launched Type 218SG, also known as The Invincible.
