Gazprom Neft has built the first 3D-printed building in the Russian Arctic in the town of Labytnangi in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. The company announced this on its website. The building houses a recreation area for employees of the production base of Gazpromneft-Snabzheniya.

“The building was built of foam concrete by a Russian-made 3D printer on a pre-installed foundation. With the help of technology, not only walls are printed, but also furniture and decor elements. The room is decorated with drawings with elements of ornaments of the indigenous peoples of the North,” the message says.

According to the company, construction using a 3D printer is 1.5 times faster and on average 30% cheaper than traditional methods.

Moreover, due to the high energy efficiency of materials, the building does not require heating in spring and autumn, the room maintains a comfortable temperature and humidity. For the winter season, an electric heating system is installed here.

“3D printing technologies make it possible to make the construction and operation of buildings more environmentally friendly, increase the speed of construction of production facilities and at the same time reduce costs. We see prospects in the use of construction 3D printing, including in the Arctic regions. Despite its futuristic nature, the building organically blends into the natural landscape of the Ob pier,” said Dmitry Potapov, CEO of Gazpromneft-Snabzheniya.
