CleanSpark, a mining company, has begun construction of the second stage of the data-center in Washington (Georgia), which will increase its capacity by 50 MW.
Last August, CleanSpark spent $16.2 million to purchase a 36MW bitcoin center from WAHA Technologies, with the possibility of further expansion.
The company plans to introduce a new line of Antminer S19j Pro and Antminer S19 XP ASIC miners for this expansion, which will increase the hash rate by 1.6-2.2 EH/s, or 25-34% over the current figure of 6.5 EH/s.
CleanSpark will spend about $16 million on construction and place up to 16,000 additional miners on the site.
When the acquisition of the Washington, D.C., site occurred in August, CleanSpark CEO Zach Bradford expressed confidence in the company's ability to expand quickly by adding 50 MW of infrastructure.
In 2022, as a result of the corporation's expansionist tactics in the bear market, it acquired both data-centers and sets of the most modern bitcoin miners.
