Kuwait marks a milestone with the first large water tank manufactured via 3D printing.

KUWAIT CITY, May 19: Abyan Building Construction Company in Kuwait has achieved a significant milestone by successfully constructing the first large water tank using 3D-printed concrete technology.

The tanks, towering at 4.5 meters in height and boasting a diameter of 7 meters, were created through the innovative process of 3D printing with low-cost concrete. Remarkably, the entire construction process was completed in just five days, showcasing the remarkable efficiency of utilizing cutting-edge technology to achieve substantial savings in both time and labor.

Utilizing the 3D construction printer “COBOD,” the project realized a remarkable 25 percent reduction in the amount of concrete and reinforcing materials required compared to conventional construction methods. This reduction not only translates to significant cost savings but also contributes to minimizing resource consumption and material wastage, promoting sustainable construction practices.

Unlike traditional tank construction methods, which are often constrained by uniform wall thickness throughout, 3D printing technology offers unparalleled design flexibility. Engineers can now tailor the thickness of the walls as needed, optimizing material usage and enhancing overall construction economics and sustainability. This newfound freedom in design enables engineers to innovate and improve upon traditional structural designs, ensuring greater efficiency and resource conservation in construction projects.
