Minister for Economic Affairs and Competitiveness, Luis de Guindos and Catalonian Regional Minister of Economy and Knowledge, Andreu Mas-Colell, visit the Barcelona Supercomputing Center

2 Dec 2013 Barcelona - Minister for Economic Affairs and competitiveness, Luis de Guindos, and Catalonian Regional Minister of Economy and Knowledge Andreu Mas-Colell visited the facilities of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS). The event was also attended by Repsol Chairman Antonio Brufau, Secretary of State for Research, Development and Innovation, Carmen Vela; Secretary of Universities and Research of the Government of Catalonia, Antoni Castellà as well as representatives of several companies that have collaboration agreements with the BSC-CNS.

As part of the visit, Repsol and the BSC have broadened their collaborations through an agreement that will contribute to the construction of the latter's new headquarters, which will be called the "BSC-Repsol Building". Director of the BSC, Mateo Valero, and Vice Chairman of Fundación Repsol, César Gallo signed the agreement whereby Repsol will provide six million euro towards the completion of the works.

The "BSC-Repsol Building" will be the first headquarters of the BSC-CNS since it was set up in 2004. The BSC-CNS currently has 300 researchers and specialists in R&D who are working in different buildings on the North Campus of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC). The supercomputer MareNostrum, a symbol of the centre and considered to be Spain's most powerful supercomputer, is housed within the Torre Girona chapel, also located on the campus.

The BSC-CNS began construction of the new building in May 2011 and works are due to be finished during 2016.

Repsol and the BSC-CSN have been collaborating since 2007 in projects with a strong focus on R&D in the field of geophysics in hydrocarbon exploration. One such project is Kaleidoscope which enables images of the seabed to be obtained faster and with more precision while respecting the natural environment.
