The first updates from Pranas Slusnys on the fitout of the completed containers was the 12th of July 2018 with a walk around of the containers.

Looking at the images below captured from Miner One video there is capacity for 385 miners.

40 feet container = 12.192 metres and the shelf sections are 1200x500mm of which there are 10 and there are 7 rows. With 6 data outlets per shelf section this gives us..
6 x 10 = 60 miners per row and 60 x 7 = 420? This isn’t correct so maybe they will have an average of 5.5 per shelf section (5 in one and 6 in the next).
5.5 x 10 = 55 miners per row and 55 x 7 = 385! This must be the plan.

385 holes, 385 points of entry, 385 area to leak, 385 areas to seal, 385 …..
Not sure why the racks are not connected to the roof….. In fact they don’t even seem to be connected to the floor?
This is a hole!
Connecting the rangehood?
Six data per shelf section.
Ten 1200mm shelf sections per container.
Ten 1200mm shelf sections per container and seven rows.

The next update from Miner One is almost two weeks later on the 25th of July 2018.

So many holes to fill! Low resolution from Facebook live feed.
385 holes x 4 screws and each hole has to be sealed.

The following Facebook video update was on the 16th of August 2018 when they were going live with the mining hardware. On the 17th of August the following was sent via email.

Pranas hard at work

Look at the numbers that are installed and something isn’t quite right, we’re only seeing one container and there are a maximum of 4 miners on each shelf section which is 40 per row and only four rows are populated which is a total of 160 miners (in fact less as some shelf sections only have 3). There should be an average of 5.5 on every shelf section for all 7 rows.

This makes no sense, you need to populate them working from the far end or you won’t be able to attach the ducting to the container side.
