Peak Mining starts construction of next-gen 30MW mining facility in Grand Forks, North Dakota
Frankfurt/Main – 15 November 2023 – Peak Mining, part of Northern Data Group, has announced the start of construction for its 30MW facility in Grand Forks, North Dakota. Expected to be fully operational in Q1 2024, the data center will feature direct-to-chip liquid-cooling technology.
Peak Mining will benefit from a significant increase in hash rate with much more efficient hardware, in preparation for the upcoming halving. The first batch of US-produced liquid-cooled M53S++ miners from MicroBT will be deployed at this location, following Peak Mining’s recent USD 150 million purchase.
The new building is designed and constructed from the ground up and will fully replace the existing mining infrastructure. This allows for the expansion of the existing mining capacity and maximizes usage of the available power. Additionally, Peak Mining is exploring options to supply excess heat to the local community as its infrastructure and cooling system has already been designed to make this possible.
As experts in data center design, build and management, the construction of the facility is managed by Ardent Data Centers, Northern Data Group’s data center infrastructure business.
Niek Beudeker, Managing Director at Peak Mining, commented: “We’re excited to be redeveloping our North Dakota location and installing infrastructure with the latest technology to accommodate our recently purchased hardware. As expected, the team at Ardent has done a great job to get to this stage and I am excited to have this project drive us further towards Northern Data Group’s goals.”
Corey Needles, Managing Director at Ardent Data Centers, commented: “This will be our first build based on high-density liquid-cooling technology. This will significantly increase the operational and cooling capacity at the site, allowing for higher output and more efficient, clean, and quiet operations. I’m very proud of our team, who worked effortlessly to get to this stage, and we look forward to supporting Peak Mining for its future builds.”
