German Bitcoin (BTC) mining infrastructure company Northern Bitcoin AG has completed the testing of its air-cooled mining container. The 20 ft. containers designed for outdoor crypto mining activities house 144 ASIC miners.
Air-cooled mining solution for all-year cold locations
On Monday a press release indicated that the mobile container solution would offer efficient and flexible mining infrastructure. The firm tested the new mining container at its Frankfurt-Hoechst facility, although its mining facilities are in Norway.
The customized containers take up cold air from outside and filter it via lamellae mounted in the exterior walls to cool down the machines during mining. The warm air is then released via the opposite container wall. Fan performance varies, and it’s under the control of temperature sensors.
The firm came up with the innovation following the procurement of 4,475 ASIC miners from Bitmain and Cannan Creative in June. Chief Technology Officer Moritz Jager stated that the container solution offers a revolutionary approach to mining Bitcoin cost-effectively and sustainably. He added that the air-cooled solution is applicable all-year-round in cold locations where sustainable energy is available cheaply. Read More at CryptoIQ...
