One I did not see on list is BlockC.  They report having 10 MW datacenter - http://www.blockc.co/ .  They are the distributor of Avalon gear outside of China.  So it is likely they have a sizable amount.

Might add them to list, I did not find them.  But I could have missed it.

10MW | KnC | Unnamed | Sweden
Note: Does anyone know where in Sweden this is?
Is Sweden like near Antarctica or something?  Tongue

But awesome list. Crazy to see how many farms there are using that much power.

KNC is located in The Node Pole which is a collection of business industrial real estate which is open to development. Obviously they have attractive offerings for people opening up shop there.

The KNC Boden datacenters are right next to each other neighboring the old Helicopter Air Base.

http://thenodepole.com/data-center-sites/helicopter-air-base/

They have hyrdro and local biogas power production and in addition are well connected to their national electric grid.

http://thenodepole.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/hydro-960x485-900x455.png

If I recall the first KNC site was 10MW and the second was going to be 20MW .. or was that 20MW total and an additional 10MW ... I'm not 100% sure, I would have to scour the media releases.

This is also home to Hydro66

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=765407.0

http://thenodepole.com/data-center-sites/hydro66/

"Hydro66, a data centre provider financed by Black Green Capital"

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/oct/22/cloud-storage-data-centre-sweden-arctic-hydro66

"Hydro 66’s anchor tenant in their first facility is a Bitcoin operation called MegaMine, which has the same equity backers and management as Hydro66."

http://www.datacenterknowledge.com/archives/2014/10/23/hydro66-kicks-off-sweden-data-center-construction-in-facebooks-neighborhood/

MegaMine is apparently these dudes;

http://www.megamine.com/aboutus.php

The pic on that page of their datacenter is clearly not their datacenter and is a pic from a facebook datacenter. Which is ironic because Facebook also actually has a datacenter in the area. Same reference as above.

There are a few missing ones I think;


LordPaco has a 1 MW mine according to, could be 4-5MW now according to reference below;

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1159107.msg12266632#msg12266632

Also pictures from page 40 in "Miner photo 'porn'"

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=766998.msg12220928#msg12220928

It's stated that the goal is to being 4 MW online by the end of the year. The post is from 08/23/2015.

Quite recently ASICSPACE had a some sort of "parting ways" with their original datacenter operated by, and they moved their remaining customers to Quincy, WA and into LordPaco's space;

"ASICSpace Mining Co. v. Salcido Connection Inc."

http://wbjtoday.com/main.asp?SectionID=2&subsectionID=62&articleID=3627

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=885197.msg13190964#msg13190964

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1328951.msg13560711#msg13560711

That means Salcido Connection Inc. is now going to operate their own datacenter with the capacity previously allocated to ASICSPACE.

http://ncwbusiness.com/main.asp?SectionID=2&SubSectionID=45&ArticleID=3742&TM=57112.81

I find it interesting that he contests the stigma around bitcoin not creating jobs.

"The metric we need to get out there is this is way more jobs per megawatt than manufacturing," he said. "Alcoa used 250 megawatts for 450 jobs. I'm creating more than 50 family wage jobs on 4 megawatts. And there's a ton of direct and indirect economic spinoff from that. Data space and emerging technology draws all kinds of spin off support industries, the kind you can imagine and those you can't imagine."

However everyone in the Chelan area is running into potential problems securing power pricing;

http://kuow.org/post/virtual-currency-meets-wariness-it-plugs-cheap-columbia-river-power

"High Density Load Forum with Chelan County PUD and Salcido Connection Wenatchee WA"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUPLp_AVIWY

seek to 4:50

At 11:50 he mentions "We have two facilities, we have a 2MW at the old Tree Top plant in Cashmere, WA and we have another 1.7MW in south Wenatchee that we call Columbia Data."

The second location might be at this site on Columbia St.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/GO+USA,+Inc/@47.4179256,-120.3044442,3a,75y,328.03h,90.39t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sFUoUHGOzUZCiJu2zxRvYYg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x3d6360bf7572beb0!6m1!1e1

Notice the power going to the upper floor of the building on the left, looks like 1MW of 3 phase. Then there is another 750 kVA transformer on the street to the right. In short, plenty of power on this street to get 1.7MW.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/GO+USA,+Inc/@47.418386,-120.3036617,299m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x3d6360bf7572beb0!6m1!1e1

The aerial view shows that Columbia St is adjacent to this substation and there are visibly existing overhead lines carrying that power over to Chehalis St and then to Columba St. Pretty ideal short runs!
Also in this meeting is "Dedicated ASIC Services" ... anyone know who that is?

Plus there is also .. OregonMines which I read had 500 kVA in one location and another 1 MW in a different location in the same area. I can not seem to find a reference for that.

One we don't really know on is some old spot's PCFLI ran miners in:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=514758.0


I know all of his current group buys go into a really nice center.  But these old "simple" ones I would guess someone else if not him is using.  Can't imagine building farms and then leaving them.   This is just a example I figure there are a few players with "simple' data centers that are pretty hard to track.  And this is all speculation I have no idea who owns the simple ones now.

Hash the Planet

http://hashthepla.net/#section-pricing

Located at a property owned by Jay Byers, owner of the 106,000-square-foot Mission District building in Cashmere who has been leasing 13,000-square feet of space to a server farm business for the past 18 months.

https://www.chelanpud.org/docs/default-source/commission/forum-lets-high-density-power-users-share-their-side-of-the-story---leavenworth-echo-jan-27-2016.pdf?sfvrsn=0

It does not mention the total capacity but it does mention the total investment of $800k going on $1M, so I would assume no less than 1 MW and probably no more than 2 MW.

http://hashthepla.net/gallery/#!

Looks like they are selling on eBay right now ...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281899529175

The listing says "We have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds". So I would assume no less than 300 and probably no more than maybe 1000. Assuming this isn't the only equipment the power need of 180 kW - 600 kW. Since that lines up with the original projection above I would assume it's a 1 MW datacenter. However spending $800k - $1 M on the setup in the picture of the Hash the Planet pics leads me to think they have a lot more power they aren't using.

In the above Chelan PUD document the building owner Jim Byers mentions ""I made the agreement with these guys that I would build the server system and in two years they will buy it for $3 million more than he put into it. So far, I'm $800,000 into this thing and will be $1 million into it before its done. I own the server system and they run the computers," he said. "They told me if the rate goes up, they will just move. I will lose $4 million if you do this."

So it sounds like he bought a bunch of miners. Man .. what did S5's go for ... $340-$420 ... If you spent $1 million on build out and another $3 million on S5's that would get you approximately 7000 S5's and psu's .... That would use 590 watts x 7000 miners = 4.1 MW. Which is still within the 5 MW Chelan PUD limit for subsidized power rates.

Although in that "High Density Load Forum with Chelan County PUD and Salcido Connection Wenatchee WA" video I posted earlier which is from just a couple days ago. It is stated several times the "actual amount of power being used currently in Chelan PUD is just over 5 MW" and that perhaps there "were" previously failed endeavors accounting for several other MW that may no longer be utilized for mining.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUPLp_AVIWY"

So if you take that as absolute truth then the following operations cannot account for more than "just over 5 MW" of active capacity. Malachi claims he is using 3.7MW of that figure leaving 1.3 - 1.6MW to account for the other two.

Dedicated ASIC Services - Michael Cao / Cashmere, could be ZoomHash who claims to have 3MW http://zoomhash.com/pages/hosting
Salcido Connection - Malachi Salcido / Cashmere, South Wenatchee
Hash the Planet - Sean Cooper / Cashmere

Oh ... cool I just confirmed the location of the second Salcido connection site.

"At last Wednesday's forum Salcido Connection owner Malachi Salcido, who has equipped much of the former Tree Top facility in Cashmere as a low tier no tier data center and is working on a second facility in the Go USA building in Wenatchee"

http://cashmerevalleyrecord.com/print.asp?ArticleID=9072&SectionID=5&SubSectionID=5

So that confirms it is the building on the right.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/GO+USA,+Inc/@47.4179256,-120.3044442,3a,75y,328.03h,90.39t/data=

Genesis Mining claims it started in Bosnia running GPU's then setup in China running scrypt and then finally ended up setting up several datacenters in Iceland mining bitcoin and X11.

https://vimeo.com/136927293

I'm not sure how much power they have in total and I don't know how many sites in Iceland. However we can conclude since we only are talking about bitcoin and that just from what is shown in the video. I can count 16 sections on the bottom and another 6 on top, each containing 9 x SP30/SP35 machines using at least 3kW to 3.5 kW of power each. So thats between 594 kW and 693 kW at least.

Here are some more pics I found of their facility

http://www.datacenterdynamics.com/design-build/bitcoin-miner-runs-the-ultimate-shoestring-facility/94764.fullarticle

Well after reading that article it claims that Genesis is currently using 1.2 MW. Also noted in the article is that BitFury's Iceland datacenter was apparently actually built by Advania. As previously discussed in the forum that BitFury has vacated this space. It appears that Advania now is offering this space to interested mining parties for 75 euro/kW-month.

https://www.advania.com/cloud/data-center-it-services/#bitcoin-colocation

They call it the Mjölnir Data Center and list the location here;

https://www.google.is/maps/place/Hafnavegur,+Hafnir/@63.9331794,-22.6711592,16.5z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x4929fd06e84f0793:0x6c01580688cd513f?hl=en

Apparently google maps imaging is out dated. BitFury had posted a video of this sites construction;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvGtrflL8zA

You'll also notice ... this well known image from that video;

https://news.bitcoin.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/bitfury-coop-view1.jpg

Is the blurred backdrop image on Advania's page;

https://www.advania.com/cloud

Apparently there are 3 of these buildings each supporting 2 MW or more for a total of perhaps 6 MW.

http://cdn.ttgtmedia.com/rms/onlineImages/sdc_iceland_04.jpg

Additionally it does appear BitFury has a second datacenter in Georgia;

http://cbw.ge/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/10525004_1154234711273103_253096434_n.jpg

Which is certainly different from their first one which was stated to be 20 MW.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3xRNmtpy6s

The new datacenter is stated to be 40 MW.

http://cbw.ge/business/pm-unveils-datacenter-with-innovative-energy-efficient-cooling-system/

And is stated to be utilizing their immersion cooling technology on both previous 28nm and latest 16nm chips.

"BitFury mega processing datacenter is equipped by the most advanced 28 and 16 nanometer chips."


Also don't forget Bitcoin Club Network which not much before January had less than 5 petahash is also in Iceland and lately has been showing up at around 20 petahash. Which means even with they have to be 5 - 10 MW.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eId68Y9fsYA

They are clearly building this out right now.

This pic looks to be an older facility as it looks like all S2's or S4's and the page this image comes from talks about their new Iceland facillity back in July.

Truly amazing thanks for sharing.  Dang the scale of it is pretty impressive you watch that building being built... it shows what a mega mining center is for sure.   I wish they would have told timeline though.  Like day 1.. and how long that took to do so much work.

Very cool video though.

I'm wondering why it's on some random youtube account and not on Bitfury's page.  I'd love to see more shots of the inside of the building and the control panels for the tanks.

Nice job on that update Sunbreak.  And nice job on the whole list armedmilitia.

Yes the KNC first site was a total of 30MW and the second is the same again.  The local
energy co. has built a 120MW upgradeable to 200MW substation nearby.

Zoomhash's mining/hosting operation somewhere in the Wenatchee area probably can account for enough usage to get to that 5MW figure.

This is super duper out of date. KnC filed for bankruptcy so it's possible they've shuttered a datacenter or two.

Is zoomhash still in business? Their prices look... dated.

Always use escrow. OgNasty is pretty sweet.

Wowee, I haven't been following this thread for a while. You guys have made some good contributions, so I decided to do a bit myself.

I've added a couple of datacenters, reorganized the thread, and made some pretty visual changes.

Zoomhash is still around, they were clearing out A2 units in large quantities the last few months obviously clearing space and capasity for the A4.

Hasn't exactly been a lot of NEW miners for them to post the last 6 months after all.
