In recent years, river repair projects often require materials such as concrete and prefabricated bricks for building rigid dams. Although they are stable, strong and provide sufficient protection, they are also expensive and complicated to construct. More importantly, the excavation and foundation-laying in the traditional construction process may incur secondary pollution to the river, destroying the integrity of the ecosystem and causing environmental problems.
Today, a new solution has emerged！YingchuangBuilding Technique (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.(WINSUN)， the world's first high-tech enterprise that has truly realized and applied 3D printing construction technology through the whole industry chain, has delivered the world’s first 3D printed secondary revetment dams. By integrating various recyclable resources, WINSUN has independently developed green and environmentally friendly ink for 3D printing buildings. The 3D printed components are far stronger than those made with traditional reinforced concrete.
In the Jiangsu section of the Shanghai-Jiangsu portline, the waterway improvement works are carried out. For the first time in history, WINSUN’s custom-made 3D printed dam is installed. According to the special requirements of the waterway, WINSUN has designed ecological slope revetment protection, using the self-developed construction ink, printing layer by layer, the slope protection is trapezoidal, the structure is stable, the wall has ecological hollow space, which can accommodate aquatic life, and the patterned top space is reserved for plantation to preserve its unique river bank ecology.
During the whole construction process, 3D printing technology has not only reduced the construction difficulties, shortens the construction time, and reduced the high cost of building, but it also has greatly reduced the on-site labor and improved the operational safety. It is especially significant for the construction of water transportation projects under these extreme environments. As the world's first 3D printed secondary revetment dam, this project has laid the foundation for its future application to other waterways. This has proven to be a brand-new solution for the rapid installation of waterway protection engineering projects.
This 3D printed revetment dam will naturally impress with its smooth contour and its beautiful appearance. This new development allows for an upgraded river revetment function that is enabled by 3D printing construction technology. From the original “common water flow” function, it has now evolved into both flood control and it preserves its original ecological functions. WINSUN’s 3D printed revetment wall can be changed and customized to any shoreline ecological requirements. 3D printing technology changes the shoreline to maintain the static beauty of its past “smooth and straight direction”, We have every reason to believe that in the near future, waterfront scenes will be spectacular sights for everyone.
At the same time, the coastline also needs such ecological protection. The dams can be customized into various shapes with different parameters. One can also reserve space or create caves in the design to allow a variety of aquatic plants and animals of different sizes to thrive. The influence of the tide, placing different designs at different water levels, so that it can accommodate marine life; an eco-friendly coastline can showcase vitality of nature’s work.
“Calm is the tide and the banks are broad, favorable is the wind as it blows the sail on a smooth voyage” Only when humans can respect nature and protect its ecology, they can live in harmony with nature and maintain a beautiful scenery. Let’s take quick action now and create the most beautiful river banks and coastline!
