Bitcoin Miner Breaks Ground in Sharon
SHARON, Pa. – Mawson Infrastructure Group Inc., a digital infrastructure provider, broke ground at 201 Clark St. earlier this month on the company’s latest Bitcoin mining operation.
The first six Modular Data Centers, capable of holding and operating up to 3,528 ASIC miners and handling approximately 12MW have been delivered to the site. The Mawson site has a total capacity of 120 MW, which is capable of housing and operating up to 35,280 ASIC miners, with those miners capable of producing up to 4.2 exahashes per second, according to a press release from the company.
The first stage of 12 MW is scheduled to be energized in the second quarter. The balance of the 120 MW capacity will come online incrementally through 2023 and early 2024.
Mawson plans for the Sharon facility to house a split of Mawson Self-Mining and Mawson Hosting operations.
The Sharon facility will also take part in Mawson’s Energy Markets program, which helps drive curtailment revenue through periods of grid stress, while simultaneously providing power stability to the grid and households throughout the PJM market.
The completion of the Sharon site, and another one in Midland, Pa. (100 MW), will see Mawson with a total capacity of up to 220 MW of power, capable of housing and operating up to approximately 64,680 ASIC miners, with those miners theoretically capable of producing approximately 7.8 exahashes per second (EH/s).
Liam Wilson, COO, said the launch of the Sharon site “is further proof of Mawson’s push to deploy infrastructure and energize through 2023, and to achieve our previously stated targets.”
Mawson Infrastructure Group is a digital infrastructure provider, with multiple operations throughout the United States and Australia. Mawson’s vertically integrated model is based on a long-term strategy to promote the global transition to the new digital economy.
