Northern Bitcoin AG Launches Environmental Friendly Air-Cooled Mobile BTC Mining Containers
A mining firm based in Frankfurt, Germany has announced that it has completed a successful testing of its eco-friendly air-cooled mining containers that can work in outdoor environment.
In a press statement, Northern Bitcoin explained that the environmental friendly mining containers will be fitted with ASIC miners. The statement further explained that the mining containers have the capacity to ingest cold air from the outside environment where it will be filtered using a lamellae fitted on the outer walls which will essentially make the mining machines cool down.
The company also revealed that it has manufactured and operated a 41 foot container that has 210 ASIC miners per container in Norway for more than one year.
The fresh eco-friendly container was developed in partnership with interested parties in Germany and is set to allow the company to expand its operations and enhance flexibility to various designations within Scandinavia.
The containers will be 20 foot long and will contain about 144 ASIC miners offering a high miner density than its earlier water-cooled containers. As per the statement, the company looks forward to deploying the mobile containers in cool locations which have sustainable sources of energy like hydropower which is in abundant and cheap.
The company notes the importance of regulation of temperature during the mining process where the computing hardware produce high volumes of heat.
Compared to other mining firms in the world, Northern Bitcoin operates an energy efficient mining and is committed to ensuring that it uses green energy produced from different locations where it operates.
According to Cointelegraph, Bitcoin mining is now becoming more efficient at a time when the network’s hash rate is breaking records at a rapid rate. By July 2019, Bitcoin mining had consumed 69.79 terawatt hours annually. This was a remarkable drop from July 2018’s consumption which stood at 71.12 terawatts when the hash rate was about 60% lower compared to July this year.
