Mawson Signs an Extension of Current Lease to Include Additional 20 MW, Increasing Capacity at the Midland, PA facility to 120 MW.
Total of 120 MW to be Online Early Q2, 2023
SHARON, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mawson Infrastructure Group Inc. (NASDAQ:MIGI) (“Mawson'' or the “Company”), a digital infrastructure provider, announces today that it has signed a lease amendment for its facility in Midland, PA which will allow for an additional 20 MW of power capacity. Upon completion of development works, the site will have 120 MW of capacity. The site is expected to be 100% online in early Q2, 2023.
Mawson is deploying an additional 10 Modular Data Centers and 5,880 ASIC miners needed to fill the capacity. All of the Company’s mining units are fully funded and currently being installed at the Midland, PA facility.
Mawson is currently developing another 120 MW facility in Sharon, PA, which is expected to come online incrementally through 2023 and 2024. Combined, the two sites will have 240 MW available (once fully developed) which can house up to 70,560 miners which can produce up to 7.8 EH/s or approximately 31.4 BTC/day (or $287 million in revenue per year).1
Mawson expects to have 132 MW online in early Q2, 2023 representing enough power for up to 38,808 ASIC miners, operating at approximately 4.2 EH/second2. This capacity expansion could potentially generate up to approximately 16.9 BTC per day, or approximately $154 million in revenue per year.3
James Manning, CEO, commented, “We are delighted to have increased our operational capacity through the lease amendment. Mawson continues to push forward through 2023. This expansion is testament to our relationships with our partners as well as the hard work of our operational and legal teams to execute. We look forward to energizing our full capacity throughout the year. We now have 240 MW online and under development in Pennsylvania, and will continue to search for strategic opportunities in these areas.”
