Apple cancels plan to open a data centre in Denmark
COPENHAGEN: Apple Inc on Tuesday announced that it had decided to cancel plans for an opening of the second data centre in Denmark.
Apple had originally planned to build two data centres in Denmark powered by wind and biomass. The first phase of construction of the original data centre near the town of Viborg is due to be completed later this year.
“As we near completion of our new Viborg data centre in central Jutland, Denmark, we’ve decided to focus on growing that site instead of building an additional data centre in Aabanraa,” the company said on Tuesday.
Apple said in 2017 that it had bought 285 hectares of land for the second site at Aabenraa near the German border. Apple has pledged to back the Paris climate accord by switching to renewable energy.
