“The increase in our hash rate this month more than offsets April’s significant increase in network difficulty, enabling the Company to deliver a month-over-month increase in bitcoin produced,” stated Kerri Langlais, Chief Strategy Officer of TeraWulf. “Additionally, with a realized average cost of power of only three cents per kilowatt hour coupled with an average availability during the month in excess of 98%, we steadily increased profit margins month over month despite challenging market conditions.” added Langlais.
“From an operational perspective, we are eager and diligently preparing for the energization of Building 2 at Lake Mariner in the coming weeks, which will nearly double the size of our existing operations in New York from 60 MW to more than 110 MW, and bring the Company’s total operational mining capacity to 160 MW and 5.5 EH/s.”
Production and Operations Update
As of April 30, 2023, the Company had an operational miner fleet of approximately 34,500 of the latest generation miners, comprised of 18,500 miners at its wholly owned Lake Mariner facility in New York (5,000 of which are hosted) and 16,000 self-miners at the nuclear-powered Nautilus facility in Pennsylvania.
TeraWulf is in the final stages of construction on Building 2, which will increase Lake Mariner’s operational capacity to over 110 MW in the coming weeks. Combined, the Company expects to have a total operational capacity of 50,000 miners (5.5 EH/s) in Q2 2023, representing approximately 160 MW of power demand.
