Innovative joint venture: thyssenkrupp and Wilhelmsen bundle 3D printing capacities

  • New joint venture "Pelagus 3D" launched on 29 September 2023

  • Pelagus 3D to become largest one-stop partner for digital manufacturing in the maritime and offshore industry

  • Global network ensures time- and cost-efficient delivery
