Objective

The goal of the project was to establish a good working relationship with a miner manufacturer and work with wasted wind energy to transform it into a new revenue stream in cryptocurrency.

Challenges

The area had a lot of dust because of the windy conditions and the lack of water supply, made keeping air filters clean.

Solutions

EZ Blockcahin’s redesigned the mobile data center with a unique shelving system and airflow system to bring its capacity up to 2.5 MWs, installing 720 x Bitmain S17 type miners. Our engineering team had to  design a separate electrical room built from scratch to make the work of the electrical operations team simpler and safer. The design of the mobile data center was divided in 6 separate sections, each had its own autonomous electrical surge protection infrastructure to operate each section independently. 

Conclusion

The location and remoteness of the site provided us with a few unique challenges, such as but not limited to excavation of the site, getting a proper fiber connection and the effects of extreme temperature.

This location has us working closely with our customers and the local community, as we are always trying to resolve issues that make each site unique.
