An environmental impact statement preparation notice has been filed for the Maui Research and Technology Park master plan update.  The idea for the facility was conceived in the 1980s to diversify the economic and employment base on Maui beyond tourism and agriculture.

The current park employs about 400 people on 432 acres and is only at 10% build out.

Significant elements of the update include a 58-acre village center and residential units on another 100 acres to the east and west of the village center.

Mana, the latest super computer at the Maui Research and Technology Park in South Maui, is based on Dell's new PowerEdge M610 series with half-height blade architecture, arranged in 1,152 compute nodes, each with two, 2.8 GHz quad-core Intel Nehalem processors and 24 GB RAM (3 GB/core) - a total of 2,304 processors with 9,216 compute cores. The interconnect fabric is Dual Data Rate Infiniband, and the system is configured with nearly 300 TB of direct-attached, DataDirect disk. Photo by Wendy Osher.

There is still three weeks left on the 30 day comment period for the project’s EIS-Preparation Notice.
