“We are thrilled to be the first company in Mena to receive the DNV certification for Additive Manufacturing of metallic parts. Regulation and certification are critical for the proper adoption of spare parts on-demand across the energy sector, and builds a framework of trust and credibility for new adopters to follow a global standard,” Fahmi Al-Shawwa, co-founder and CEO of Immensa, told Trade Arabia. “We are also excited to collaborate with key bodies to provide the best possible on-demand and Additive Manufacturing solutions to the energy sector. Our MoU with NIDLIP and KACST will help us implement the right frameworks to transform supply chains, and promote the Kingdom [of Saudi Arabia] as a key hub for logistics and Additive Manufacturing.”

Dr Sastry Kandukuri, Global AM Practice Lead & Technical Authority for AM Certification at DNV Energy Systems, added, “This certification is a fundamental requirement for any global Additive Manufacturing producer that manufactures parts according to our DNV-ST-B203 AM standard. With its commitment to adhering to best practices aligned with world-class standards, Immensa truly deserves this accolade.”
