Wind Farm Project
One of the Windiest Sites in the World
The wind farm site is a Class I site in an area known for some of the best wind resources in the world (see wind map).
Soluna will develop the flagship wind site in a modular fashion called Pods. Each Pod comprises 12MW of power generation, an associated storage system, and a 6MW cryptocurrency mining or Blockchain computing center. The full site can accommodate approximately 75 Pods, based on current turbine technology. The entire infrastructure will be developed in accordance with the applicable Moroccan laws and regulations.
The first phase will consist of three Pods, or the equivalent of 36MW of energy production capacity, and 18MW of computing facilities with the ability to produce 160,882 tera hash per second.
Soluna has acquired the rights to a 37,000 acre wind farm site in southern Morocco, near the city of Dakhla.
Dakhla is situated in the region of Oued-Ed-Dahab, a province in the Moroccan economic region of Dakhla-Oued-Ed-Dahab. This region is also known as the disputed territory of Western Sahara.
Soluna has and will continue to conduct our activities in strict accordance with the governing laws of the region. We have obtained the necessary approvals from the regional and national government authorities of Morocco. We are also conscientious of the importance of ensuring our project is aligned with the principles that the interest of the inhabitants of these territories is paramount.
