The Zeewolde municipality in the Netherlands has announced the intention to expand the existing Trekkersveld business park, which includes a hyperscale data centre as well. What’s worth mentioning is that it is touted to be the largest data centre in Europe. And, it is claimed reportedly that a major American tech giant (social networking giant Facebook) is behind this data centre in Zeewolde will be used for its ambitious plans.
Largest data centre in farming land!
The Baardmeesweg region is characterised by vast meadows with farms and windmills with a majority of dairy farmers. If it’s a global tech giant that has acquired this piece of land, then this look will no more be its identity next year. Word is that the first shovel for the largest data centre in Europe likely to be built in an area of nearly 166 hectares should go into the ground for the same.
