SINGAPORE, June 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bitdeer Technologies Group (Nasdaq: BTDR) (“Bitdeer” or the “Company”), a world-leading technology company for blockchain and high-performance computing, is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a lease agreement with the Monroe County Port Authority (MCPA) to secure up to 570 MW of additional power capacity. This strategic partnership significantly increases Bitdeer’s total capacity to 2.5 GW globally and strengthens Bitdeer’s infrastructure development pipeline for Bitcoin mining and high-performance computing (HPC) and AI.
