Chinese mining pool Poolin together with Bitmain, a manufacturer of mining equipment, are building a cryptocurrency mining center in the U.S. state of Texas. The capacity of the data center will be 600 MW.
A mining center is being built near the small village of Payot in Ward County. After construction is completed, the total area of the farm will be 586,800 square meters. The first stage of the project for 100 MW has already been put into operation, and the construction of the second stage of a similar capacity is underway. It is planned that the construction of the second stage will be completed this month. Bitmain supplies Antspace HK3 containers for installing mining devices. The total number of devices in the second phase will be 47,000 units, while the Antminer S19 Pro + Hyd model will be used. with water cooling and a hashrate of 198 Tx / s. This will be the company’s first mining center to be fully water-cooled.
As emphasized separately in the presentation, the data center near Payot will be powered by energy obtained exclusively from environmentally friendly sources. We are talking about solar power plants, wind turbines, as well as natural gas generators.
Recall that President Joe Biden recently declared a state of emergency in the United States due to a lack of energy generating capacity, which could negatively affect the activities of local miners.
