Core Scientific Opens Blockchain Facility in Calvert City, Kentucky

A leader in artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies, Core Scientific opened a new large-scale blockchain facility in Calvert City, Kentucky.

The company is breathing new life into a steel mill facility that closed in 2016. The premium blockchain facility, with purpose-designed buildings that are thermodynamically engineered for high efficiency and temperature management, has already deployed more than 30MW of customer blockchain servers, with 125MW total power ready-now.

According to company officials, in an increasingly distributed and connected world, Core Scientific believes AI and blockchain are changing the way information is processed, shared and stored across a range of industries. The facility in Calvert City is a high-density datacenter that extends the Core Scientific footprint to more than 250MW of capacity across five datacenters, with a further 400MW under LOI.

"We are investing in the infrastructure and software solutions that help our customers maximize the performance of their servers," said Kevin Turner, CEO of Core Scientific. "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."

"Our software solutions and optimization technology means that our customers earn more with Core," said Turner. "As one of the largest blockchain hosting providers in the USA we are trusted by large-scale partners around the world to deliver optimized solutions."
