Who we are

Under the governance of the Luxembourg Ministry of State and the Luxembourg Ministry of Economy, LuxProvide S.A., as a 100% subsidiary of LuxConnect, is in charge of the acquisition, launch and operation of Luxembourg’s high-performance computer MeluXina. The mission of LuxProvide, headquartered in Bissen (Luxembourg), is to facilitate access to the use of the computational capabilities of MeluXina by setting up a competence centre in collaboration with Luxinnovation and the University of Luxembourg providing dedicated support to companies in their high-performance computing projects. LuxProvide will ultimately employ up to 50 people.

About MeluXina

Luxembourg’s first supercomputer MeluXina will be installed in LuxConnect’s Data Center DC2 in Bissen, which is powered by green energy from Kiowatt, a cogeneration plant fuelled by waste wood. Its modular architecture will focus on the needs of its users including companies and players in the Luxembourg economy, and more specifically SMEs and start-ups. MeluXina is a key element of Luxembourg’s data-driven innovation strategy, which aims to develop a sustainable and reliable digital economy and supports the digital transition of the economy by facilitating competitiveness and business innovation in an increasingly digital world. The computing power of MeluXina will be more than 10 petaflops.

It will be operational by the first quarter of 2021 and ranked among the first 30 of the TOP500 supercomputers worldwide.

Our story

15 February 2019: EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) launched an open call to select European hosting entities for supercomputers and creation of a consortium initiated by the Luxembourg Ministry of Economy. Led by LuxConnect, the consortium involved Luxembourg actors, i.e. the University of Luxembourg through its HPC team and the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), and the first-choice Jülich Supercomputing Center (JSC).

7 June 2019: EuroHPC JU selects a total of eight sites in different Member States to host supercomputers, including five for petascale systems, one of which is Luxembourg.

14 June 2019: presentation of the future Luxembourg HPC MeluXina. It will be part of the joint initiative EuroHPC JU, which is headquartered in Luxembourg.

24 July 2019: creation of LuxProvide S.A. as a 100% subsidiary of LuxConnect.

January 2020: EuroHPC JU and LuxProvide issue a tender for the procurement of the national supercomputer.

July 2020: appointment of LuxProvide’s management team: Pascal Bouvry and Roger Lampach are appointed CEO. Valentin Plugaru joins them as CTO. Matthieu Lefebvre holds the position of Group Leader, User Engagement & Professional Services.

August 2020: final decision about the supplier of the national supercomputer.
