Bitfarms Begins the Construction of 201 MW Farm


Bitfarms recently formalized a deal that will see the construction of a high-production Farm. Based in Argentina, the facility will house close to sixty thousand miners once it is complete.

The team says this EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) agreement is a significant step for the company as it will allow capacity expansion across the world.

According to Emilliano Grodzki, the company’s Chief Executive Officer, their original price for mining BTC will attract more as this new development ensures an even lower production cost (22 cents per kWh).

In April, Bitfarms made the first announcement on the new idea adding that by the end of next year, they expect to  accumulate a total of 210 MW of capacity in terms of infrastructure. 

Proyectos y Obras Americanas S.A. (PROA) is an Argentinian Engineering firm. The company has been providing EPC services while specializing in civil construction & voltaic infrastructure for more than sixty years.

Additionally, Proyectos y Obras Americanas S.A. (PROA) initiated the designing and establishment processes of electrical lines & even transformers with high voltage required for the operation of the new company. 

Other than PROA, Bitfarms partnered with Dreicoin S.A. to oversee the construction and successful completion of the farm. 

About the new Argentina Facility 

The Argentinian company will function under four houses with a warehouse structure. The reduction in demand led the involved groups signing an eight-year treaty for powering the new facility’s development. 

So far, the majority of the designing process is complete and the team has started to prepare the site. 

Some of the 60,000 total miners expected to join are from the forty eight thousand MicroBT miners Bitfarms purchased earlier this year.
