Apple will build the new data center in Ireland

Apple has officially resumed work on its data center in Ireland, despite the fact that the project now seems to have definitely faded.

In 2018, Apple announced that it had abandoned its plans to make the data center in Irlanda, due to the protests of the citizens of the city of Atherny. All hope now seemed lost, but now it seems that the project has been definitively resumed after the rumors of the last few weeks. Apple has in fact requested and obtained a five-year extension of its building permit, specifying that it plans to build the data center by 2026.

Apple announced a € 1.7 billion investment in 2015 to build two data centers in Europe, one in Denmark that opened a year ago and the other in Ireland. Each would have covered an area of ​​approximately 166,000 square meters, but the problems that arose in Ireland first slowed down and then stopped the works altogether. Together, the two data centers will provide online services across Europe, such as the iTunes Store, App Store, iMessage, Apple Maps and Siri.

As for Ireland, a small number of residents filed a series of complaints to stop the works, due to various concerns about the environment and the quality of life in the city of Atherny after the completion of the works. Apple answered all the questions, so much so that government inspectors gave the green light to the project. Several subsequent complaints prompted Apple to change its mind and suspend every project, but now the situation seems to have been resolved.
