Friday, September 6, 2019
Today, to mark the anniversary year for VDNKh, PJSC LUKOIL opened an interactive training center in the historical Oil Pavilion No. 25 to celebrate the achievements of the Russian oil industry, the national science and technological development. Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin and LUKOIL President Vagit Alekperov evaluated the extent of reconstruction and the potential of the new building for residents and tourists.
The Oil Pavilion is the largest Russian multimedia exhibition dedicated to applied science, which takes visitors on a tour into a full production cycle of a vertically integrated oil company, from production to refining and marketing.
The pavilion consists of four connected rooms called Humankind and Oil, History, Technologies and Science, interactively presenting the history of the oil industry and its development prospects. The installations were created using advanced technology such as virtual and augmented reality, a hologram theater, as well as modern phygital solutions bridging the digital and physical worlds. The presence of oil in various aspects of human life is shown through the synchronization of physical, graphic and multimedia content across 150 exhibits.
The Oil Pavilion is designed for a wide range of visitors including children passionate about science and technology, students, and SMEs.
The pavilion is located next to Neftegrad, a children's interactive playground presenting four symbolically rendered play structures with slides and climbing elements, including the Offshore Oil Production Platform, Oil Refinery, Fuel Truck, Racing Car, as well as trampolines, seesaws and interactive panels. The playground is covered with a special safe coating and provides full access for adults into all play structures.
