Core Scientific, an infrastructure and software provider for AI and blockchain technologies, announced that it has opened a new large-scale blockchain facility in Calvert City, Kentucky.
The premium blockchain facility was purposely designed in buildings that are thermodynamically engineered for high efficiency and temperature management. The facility has already deployed more than 30MW of customer blockchain servers and mining machines, with 125MW total power ready-now.
The facility in Calvert City is a high-density datacenter that extends the Core Scientific footprint to more than 250MW of capacity across five data centers, with a further 400MW under LOI.
This expansion into Kentucky is in partnership with TVA and Jackson Purchase for power supply, and with local contractors including Murtco, Collier Electric, Barnhart Crane, Manpower and Belyea Corporation.
“We are investing in the infrastructure and software solutions that help our customers maximize the performance of their servers. Our goal is to provide the optimized environment for the latest generation of blockchain servers, and create capacity for global customers to securely host in the stable US market.”
