CleanSpark, a sustainable bitcoin mining and energy technology company, hosted a Media and Dignitary Ribbon Cutting ceremony today at its state-of-the-art, immersion-cooled bitcoin mining facility in Norcross, GA. The ceremony was followed by guided tours of the facility where attendees could ask questions, take pictures and videos, see the inner workings of the bitcoin mining facility up close, and interact with CleanSpark’s senior leadership team.
The Norcross facility, one of the four campuses owned and operated by CleanSpark, has 4,167 miners, totaling 20 megawatts (MW). According to a News Release from CleanSpark, The crypto mining facility consists of 180 liquid-filled tanks, with each tank holding 33 units of the Antminer S19j Pro machines—the newest generation series of bitcoin miners on the market—fully immersed in a proprietary cooling liquid. The liquid is a synthetic hydrocarbon compound that has no electrical conductivity and is fully biodegradable and safe.
“This project expands our portfolio of energy efficient solutions, adding to the engineering tools at our disposal,” said Matthew Schultz, CleanSpark’s Executive Chairman.
“We are constantly seeking ways to make our operations more sustainable and productive while achieving maximum performance,” said Zach Bradford, CEO of CleanSpark. “Deploying an environment-friendly cooling technology that also increases the economics of our bitcoin mining operations was an obvious choice for us.”
Other Georgia CleanSpark locations include a 36 MW facility in Washington, GA, an 80 MW facility in Sandersville, GA, and a 47 MW facility in College Park, GA. These facilities have created jobs and brought significant revenue for the public power-owned utilities. Other than crypto mining, what do these communities have in common?
