The Hartree Centre in the north of the county at Daresbury SCI-TECH is a ground-breaking collaboration between University of Liverpool, Atos computers and IBM. They have one of the UK’s largest supercomputer and are forging links with industry to offer efficiency modelling for a huge range of areas. This was the opening of the new facility. Prince Andrew arrived and I was introduced to him both on arrival and again on departure. He is clearly a huge standard bearer for technological advances and gave an excellent 5 minute speech having done a tour of the facility. He then went on with the Lord Lieutenant to see a further variety of businesses including ASDA’s fully automated distribution centre in Warrington.
