In accordance with its Statute, the mission of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is to coordinate and unify the petroleum policies of its Member Countries and ensure the stabilization of oil markets in order to secure an efficient, economic and regular supply of petroleum to consumers, a steady income to producers and a fair return on capital for those investing in the petroleum industry.
Three "Wheels of Time" stations show a film produced by OPEC and checkpointmedia on the occasion of OPEC's 50th anniversary dealing with the creation of OPEC in 1960 and its development until today. By using a steering wheel as interface, the OPEC "Wheel of Time"-terminal enables the visitor to navigate through major time periods of OPEC history.
The "Who is Who" stations enable access to research and information on OPEC officials, member countries, events and headquarters via touch-screen interfaces.
The custom-made, very elegant terminals, which are movable on wheels, are made of powder-coated steel-sheets with a body of only 8cm and upended, 22" screens. They have been positioned in different parts of the OPEC building for the use of visitors, officials and the press.
