Meta revocation creates Data Center in the Netherlands

 

Meta, the company that owns Facebook, has moved away from the decision of the big data center in the Netherlands. The US technology giant has changed its mind due to political opposition. News, Reuters.

 

A statement from the organization said, "In light of the current situation, we have moved away from the decision to set up our data center in Zeewolde." Last December, the city approved plans to build the largest such infrastructure in the Netherlands.

 

"Given the present circumstance, we have gotten away from the choice to set up our server farm at Zeewolde," the organization said in an articulation. Last December, the city approved plans to build the largest such infrastructure in the Netherlands. If the data center was set up on 410 acres of land, it would consume 1.36 gigawatts of electricity per hour. The technologists hoped that the data center would be fully green and would create 400 permanent jobs. The Netherlands produces very limited amounts of renewable energy. Some environmentalists oppose giving foreign companies the benefit of the doubt. In this context, the decision changes. Some Zeewolde residents said the government had not complied with their demands for permission. The resolution, passed in the Senate, called for halting all construction work until government regulations and policies on data centers are implemented.
