Petroleum Development Oman’s new EcOman Center in Mina al Fahal is a journey through the evolution and future of energy. The EcOman Center is a centre where visitors of any age can learn about the possibilities, and the use, of sustainable sources of energy.
The center focuses on three themes: Power Tower, Better World and Energy Journey.
Visitors start their tour with the Power Tower, which shows the sources and the impact that energy has using technical illustrations, animations and interactive demonstration models.
Visitors can then discover how human beings have developed technologies to use natural sources of energy. This starts with the discovery of fire and continues to the present day and the combustion of fossil fuels and production of electricity.
Visitors continue on to the Better World where they will learn how you can have a positive impact on the world. Here they will see models of eco-friendly houses with displays showing how eco-friendly resources, recycling programmes and energy storage take place in practice.
