It does not need to be heated in spring and autumn

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Gazprom Neft has built a building for its employees in the Yamalo-Nenets autonomous okrug using 3D printing on a Russian printer. Despite its futuristic nature, the building organically blended into the natural landscape of the Ob pier.

With the help of 3D technology, construction turned out to be one and a half times faster and cheaper by 30 percent. The recreation building for specialists was built from foam concrete – walls, furniture and interior elements were printed. The walls were decorated with drawings with elements of the North indigenous peoples ornaments.

The premises do not require heating in spring and autumn – the building maintains a comfortable temperature, in winter it is heated using an electric heating system.

“3D printing technologies make the buildings construction and operation more environmentally friendly, increase the speed of production facilities construction and at the same time reduce costs. We see prospects in the construction 3D printing use, including in the Arctic regions”, said Dmitry Potapov, Gazprom Neft-Snabzhenie director general.

As a reminder, Nornickel is mastering 3D printing technologies in the parts for complex equipment manufacture. Recently, at the Nadezhda metallurgical plant in Norilsk, a snail part weighing half a ton was printed on a 3D printer and installed. Scientists have created the first samples of parts for Arctic ships using 3D printing.
