VALIDUS POWER AND STARTMINING DETAIL PLANS FOR 100MW BITCOIN MINING DATA CENTRE
PRESS RELEASE: Validus Power Corp. and Startmining are proud to announce the new construction of a 100MW Bitcoin mining data centre at a Validus Power Generation site in Ontario. Initial project work has commenced with an expected target of August, 2022.
This expansion meets the mutual goal of growing the Canadian Bitcoin ecosystem, while investing in Ontario infrastructure. The project includes the modernisation of existing power assets, and new integration of an innovative power blend, resulting in an industry leading environmental profile for this power generation site and data centre campus. Further expansion details will be announced later this year.

These strategic agreements address the urgent need, at a time when Startmining is receiving close to 1.5 GW of hosting demand, to provide imminent mining that is both affordable and sustainable over the long term,” said Saimi Barragan, founder and CEO of Startmining.
Todd Shortt, President and CEO of Validus also commented, “Startmining shares our view of a strong and viable future for Bitcoin in Canada as we continue to develop sophisticated power and infrastructure campuses. This is especially true in Ontario where we have a robust support structure. Startmining also shares our values and long term vision”.
