DRESDEN, N.Y. and DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenidge Generation Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: GREE) ("Greenidge") today announced it has been selected by Bitmain as one of five global launch customers for Bitmain's newly announced ANTMINER S19 XP. The S19 XP technology requires approximately 27% less electricity per terahash than the most efficient bitcoin mining equipment currently available in the market.
"We are excited to be chosen as a launch partner for this latest release from Bitmain," said Greenidge's CEO Jeff Kirt. "The ANTMINER S19 XP demonstrates a step-function increase in efficiency for our industry, and we are excited to deploy this next generation technology at one of our 100% carbon-neutral facilities."
"Greenidge's commitment to carbon-neutral bitcoin mining makes it the ideal launch partner for the ANTMINER S19 XP," said Irene Gao, Bitmain Business Development Director of the NCSA Region for Bitmain. "Like Greenidge and many of our customers, Bitmain is dedicated to improving the carbon footprint of the bitcoin mining industry. That is why we're thrilled to announce not only the S19 XP but also the green ANTMINER S19 XP. Bitmain is manufacturing a limited addition of green ANTMINER S19 XP and is offsetting 100% of the carbon footprint associated with the production and the first year's operation of these miners by purchasing carbon offset credits."
The launch order of green ANTMINER S19 XP miners will be delivered in the third quarter of 2022. Greenidge intends to deploy the units at a facility to be developed in South Carolina or Texas. This order brings Greenidge's current and committed mining capacity to approximately 49,000 miners and 4.7 EH/s by the end of 2022. It also solidifies the company's position as a leading environmentally conscious miner focused on driving maximum efficiency of its fleet while maintaining a carbon-neutral footprint.
The ANTMINER S19 XP has 21.5 joules/TH of efficiency compared to Bitmain's previous S19 Pro technology of 29.5 J/TH. The units will consume 27% less energy per terahash and will deliver 37% more computing power per kilowatt hour than current technology.
