Russian state-owned nuclear power plant to provide leased space for Bitcoin miner equipment

Late last month, Russia's state-owned nuclear power plant Rosatom State Atomic Energy opened a mining site near the Kalinin nuclear power plant. Sergei Nemchenkov, director of data centers and digital products at its subsidiary Rosenergoatom, said the company spent $ 4.8 million to build a 30-megawatt facility. However, Rosenergoatom does not intend to mine it by itself. Instead, additional power will be sold to power heavy users and rental space will be provided for their equipment.
