1x 40 Ft mobile data center Smartbox
FOR POWER GENERATOR AND LOCAL COMMUNITY
Power plant could generate power more efficiently by utilizing bitcoin mining farm as a battery to balance load.
Power plant began to utilize its electrical infrastructure with higher capacity increasing the consistent supply to the grid.
Multiple tech jobs were opened, which diversified local labor market
Power generation company was looking for the solution to diversify its revenue and build a demand response system that can consume power at the off peak hours.
Power generation company had strict electrical requirements and strict sound level requirements at the property line. The area had a lot of dust because of the windy conditions. The operations facilities were designed to install high density load mobile data centers.
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.
Company’s team developed a simple from operations perspective but complex from engineering perspective filter louvers door in each section. This optimized the effort of changing filters on a constant basis, reducing the amount of labor hours needed to perform the work.
Our HVAC engineers had to pick a special type of fan blades used for HVAC cooling system to minimize the sound output from the fans in a 100% mode. In addition a commercial VFD system was installed to optimize the fan RPM during night hours to minimize the noise when the temperature drops during the night.
Installing the crypto mining facility before the meter is a complicated task, every Industrial scale generation facility has strict rules and regulations to meet. EZ team had to be very flexible and take a creative approach to deliver the required product on time.
The company continued providing tech support for the project after installation of the bitcoin mining farm. In general it was a unique experience working directly with a power provider right at the source of power.
