Komsomolsk Refinery introduces virtual technologies for specialist training

01 March 2024

The Komsomolsk Refinery (an enterprise of Rosneft’s refining complex) has installed domestically produced VR simulators to train staff of the electrical equipment workshop. This innovative development helps improve the quality of professional training of specialists.

The developers recreated two electrical units of the plant, which provide energy for the main production shops, in the smallest detail. With the VR headset, a trainee can instantly step out of the classroom into any part of the facility and use controllers to perform the operations required. Operational staff of the shop works out all actions to automatism, thus excluding the probability of deviations from the technological mode of the real equipment. The task can be done alone, in pairs or with a tutor. Training programs vary in complexity and are individually tailored for internships or advanced training.

At the moment, the virtual system is being operated in test mode, but it has already demonstrated great opportunities for improving the skills of specialists. So far, models of two substations have been created, but in the future all electrical installations of the plant will appear in VR.

Digitisation in all areas of activity is one of the key elements of the Rosneft’s strategy. The use of digital technologies enables faster decision-making throughout the entire production chain and increases transparency and efficiency of process management.


RN-Komsomolsk Refinery LLC is the largest oil refining enterprise in Khabarovsk Krai and is vital for petroleum products supplies to the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District.
