Mawson to deploy across the Quinbrook Australia and US portfolio in late 2021 and 2022
SYDNEY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mawson Infrastructure Group Inc. (NASDAQ:MIGI) (“Mawson”), a digital infrastructure provider, is pleased to announce its first Australian site will be online in October 2021, powered by 100% renewable energy, in partnership with Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners (“Quinbrook”).
Mawson and Quinbrook have partnered on the initial 20MW site in northern New South Wales, Australia. This initial site allows Mawson to establish a strategic operation in Australia. Mawson will be deploying a new generation Modular Data Centre (MDC) specifically designed for Australian conditions at this facility, which will add approximately 0.4 EH to global operations.
Beyond the initial 20MW project, Mawson and Quinbrook have identified a pipeline of renewable energy assets across the Quinbrook portfolio in Australia and the US where future sites are expected to be jointly developed.
James Manning, CEO and Founder of Mawson, said, "Quinbrook’s values, experienced team and diverse operations made them a logical partner. Our partnership reflects our joint view that renewable energy will be key to future data centre infrastructure. Mawson is seeking to identify renewable energy projects which lead the transition to a decarbonized society, with a key focus on sustainable bitcoin mining. Quinbrook’s deep experience in energy and focus on ESG investment principles made this first project an obvious choice.”
