CRYPTOCURRENCY MINING. The rise in cryptocurrency popularity and value has been seemingly ceaseless since its origin at the start of the millennium. Despite excessive, often expensive, and difficult to maintain power necessary to run crypto-mining supercomputers, scores of investors are jumping on the bandwagon to stake their own claim. Meanwhile, increasingly stringent requirements to minimize emissions and environmental impacts have challenged the energy production industry to reduce and/or omit flaring and venting.
FlexEnergy Solutions’ turbines, running on stranded, associated gas and tank vapors have proven valuable to a number of producers for remote data processing, simultaneous with environmental compliance. Additional benefits include:
DATA CENTERS, one of the highest electric energy consumers, require high-quality and extremely reliable energy to ensure continuous operation. This typically results in substantial electricity costs. Extended blackouts may not only result in production and sale losses but can also damage your product, particularly if climate control is critical to your inventory. According to Information Technology Intelligence Consulting, an hour of outage downtime costs data center operators, on average, $260,000. Heat recovery from Flex Turbines also powers absorption chillers to support the significant cooling loads typically needed to keep data center servers from overheating.
