Lancium Plans Abilene, Texas, Data Center-Bitcoin Campus
Lancium and its customers plan to invest $2.4 billion over 20 years, building their Clean Compute Campus on approximately 800 acres in Taylor County and Abilene, pending annexation into the city limits. Breaking ground in the first quarter of 2022, the campus will initially contain approximately 100,000 square feet of industrial electric services equipment and data servers, according to the Development Corporation of Abilene (DCOA).
"We are very proud to be part of the community and build one of our flagship Clean Campuses in Abilene," said Michael McNamara, Co-founder and CEO of Lancium. "We chose Abilene for our second Clean Campus because of its ideal location, proximity to abundant wind and solar generation, high-quality workforce and the opportunities to grow in the future. We want to thank the city, county and all of the members of the economic development team that worked together to help make this significant milestone possible."
The significant milestone, the largest project in Abilene and Taylor County history, is pending final negotiations with Taylor County, the City of Abilene, and the DCOA.
"Lancium's development is a tremendous opportunity to ensure the viability of the community for years to come through the diversification of our economy," said Misty Mayo, President and CEO of the DCOA. "Over the next 20-years, this project is estimated to bring $993.4 million in total projected economic impact to Taylor County and the City of Abilene. This is the exact kind of opportunity the DCOA is tasked to find and win for our community."
Lancium is a technology company creating software and technical solutions that enable the faster growth of renewable energy. In 2020, the company enabled the world’s first “Controllable Load Resource” data center. Today it works for Bitcoin mining but traditional computing is next.
