You need to understand more about Wien2k before you try something as
ambituous as this. Some comments:

a) You need to compile and check mpi version of Wien2k first. You are
currently not using it.
b) You have 4x4x5 k-points, which is way too many. The default (23.2) uses
2x2x2 and I would suggest just using 1 without shift at first. This will be
40 times faster.
c) Your calculation appears to have TsO2 in between an OH terminated
silicate on one side, and a (strange) Si terminated silicate on the other.
I suggest a far smaller cell using IO2 (similar, probably, to Ts) as a
sanity test first. I think your Si termination is probably wrong, and I
doubt that TsO2 is even remotely valid.
d) You appear from the dayfile and job output log to be running 32 k-point
parallel jobs, each with 4 OMP. I assume that you allocated 128 cores for
this, although your script appears to show #SBATCH=1 which is one node.
e) Assuming that you have allocated 128 cores, your machines file should

332 atoms is not that large, although I think it will take forever to reach
anything reasonable as I don't think that your structure is realistic. For
context, I am currently running a 1212 atom calculation using 3 kpts on a
cluster using 224 Gold 6130 cores, with one iteration taking 90 minutes.

I suggest that you start with just calculating a surface slab of your
silicate to get that right and learn, before trying something this
