Apple to invest € 1.7bn in data centers in Denmark, Ireland
February 24 , 2015
Technology giant Apple will invest 1.7 billion euros to develop data centers in Denmark and Ireland.
The Irish centers will be situated in County Galway and central Jutland. The former would be built on state forestry land and use only renewable energy as a source of power.
Data centers consume a lot of power to help the servers stay cool.
Apple will run services such as app stores and online music in the Republic of Ireland centers.
Enda Kenny, the Irish prime minister, described it as a “very significant investment” in western Ireland.
