Atos to deliver Senegal’s supercomputer in the coming months

(Ecofin Agency) - The supercomputer, for which a €15 million financing agreement was signed in December 2016 in Paris by Senegal’s ministers of economy and higher education and the French public investment bank, will be delivered in some months.  

This was announced by Mary Teuw Niane (photo), the minister of higher education, on January 14, 2019, during the signature of a memorandum of understanding with Arianegroup SAS, a company specialized in aeronautics and space construction.

According to the minister, the supercomputer was bought from the French digital services provider Atos. It will be installed at the National centre for scientific computing Centre national de Calcul scientifique (CNCS), which will be ready in about a week at cité du Savoir de Diamniadio.

Presented as the most powerful latest generation parallel computer in the southern Sahara, South Africa excluded, this tool will have about 320 TfIops in computational power, and 21 To of integrated storage capacity.

The supercomputer will help implement the two axes of the Plan Sénégal émergent (PSE): which are agrohydrology and the mining sector. The digital simulation that it will enable in the agriculture and hydrology, climatology, and image processing sector will help innovate in meteorology, climatology, image processing, vegetative growth, and population dynamics. In the mining sector, it will help simulate the oil fields, geologic and 3D mapping and modelling of the territory.
