The giant American corporation aims expansion by coming to Denmark. The 1.7 billion euro worth Data Centre is meant to create 300 new jobs for the Danish workforce. The IT students from Dania Academy of Higher Education in Viborg see a great potential in the initiative.

In 2017, the new Apple Data Centre will start to be built in Foulum near Viborg. The centre will be 100% powered by renewable energy and is said to generate 300 new vacancies. Being the biggest European investment Apple has ever made, the new Data Center will run some of Apple’s most popular services such as itunes store, imessage, maps, Siri and App Store. The large project is meant to help expanding the American company’s operations. Another similar centre, but of smaller capacity, will also open in Ireland as part of the company’s European growth.
