On the basis of combined heat and power Sarapul in Udmurtia can be arranged to mining cryptocurrencies. This was told by the new Director General “gubakhinskiy energy company” (“gehk”), Andrey Kolesnik, writes “Kommersant”.
Together with the Sarapul TETS the company also owns Kizelovskaya GRES in the Perm region. But, according to Kolesnik, the development of the data center, including mining, deals only in Udmurtia.
It does not specify whether it is the establishment of a special centre for the mining of cryptocurrencies in the plant, or just about building a data center in Sarapul.
“The cryptocurrency we also consider, but until a legislative framework to tackle it is not planned”, — said Kolesnik.
It should be noted that Sarapul CHPP produces about 10.7 MW of electricity. To commit one bitcoin transaction to an average of 328 kilowatt hours of energy. If the CHP will disconnect from the grid and all power will be directed to mining, it will be able 783 to conduct daily transactions.
Recall that in the UK invented the spirometer, which allows you to mine cryptocurrency using exhaled air.
