Dubai's ENOC Group unveils Expo 2020 pavilion
Under the theme ‘Reimagine Energy’, the pavilion will take visitors on a journey through the role of energy in the past, present and future and look at the company’s plans to drive energy sustainability.

ENOC Group, the official Integrated Energy Partner of Expo 2020, has revealed details of its pavilion at the global event.

Under the theme ‘Reimagine Energy’, the pavilion will take visitors on a journey through the role of energy in the past, present and future and look at the company’s plans to drive energy sustainability.

Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group chief executive officer of ENOC, said: “As the official Integrated Energy Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, we are presenting an innovative and fully immersive experience that challenges the conventional understanding of energy and offers inspiring insights on how we can all partner in shaping the future of energy.”

The architectural theme of the pavilion draws on the design of oil storage tanks with five distinct structures including four ‘houses’ taking visitors on a multi-sensory 18-minute journey through four distinctive narratives: Discovery – what energy is; Harness – what energy enables; Collaborate – what energy needs; and Reimagine – what energy promises.

The pavilion is constructed using 650 tonnes of steel and is designed and engineered taking into consideration potential legacy use.

The ENOC Pavilion will also feature ‘The Hive,’ a dedicated space for government and industry stakeholders to engage in finding answers to the industry’s unanswered questions. 

And, in a first-of-its-kind journey, visitors can also ‘feel’ the energy through the use of ultrasound, audio-visual narratives, sensory experiences, kinetic installations and interactive projections.

The flooring of kinetic play areas is made of recycled rubber and condensation from air-conditioning the pavilion will be harvested for landscape irrigation.

In all, the pavilion will be live for 173 days offering 1,730 hours of live experiences for hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Earlier this year ENOC unveiled plans for a new concept design service station on the Expo site that will be built on the exoskeleton of the Ghaf tree structure. The station, which will serve District 2020 once the event is finished, is designed to be the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certified service station in the region.
