Apple recently gained approval for building a $950 million data center project in Galway, Ireland.
The tech giant applied to build the data center in April 2015 as part of a plan to build two new European data centers in Ireland and Denmark, revealed in February. Now that the Irish site has been approved, with twelve conditions, Apple plans to have it up and running by 2017.
Their plans are to build a 263,000 sq ft single story center on a 500-acre forest site in Derrydonnell, Athenry. Due to the location and local government ordinances and complaints, there have been several conditions placed on the building process such as limiting construction times and the number of vehicles on the road during construction.
