Shipping replacement parts in any heavy industry, and specifically in maritime is expensive:  Current supply chains are heavily burdened by centralized production, storage and transportation costs. Removing these costs lowers the cost of goods sold by over 50%. 


It is also time consuming: Replacing parts is a cumbersome, complex and expensive process. From order to receipt, end-users can expect to wait anywhere from 3-6 weeks.


Parts are shipped around the world everyday.  From a manufacturer in China, to a warehouse in the US, to end-user in Singapore... This process is detrimental to our environment. 


In the current state of the additive manufacturing technology and because every inch of a maritime vessel is necessary for operations, it wouldn’t make sense to onboard a 3D printing shop. 

Providing localized and on-demand manufacturing of replacement parts in ports makes more sense.
