An opponent of Apple’s stalled plans for a data centre in Co Galway has failed to prevent online giant Amazon securing planning permission for the first phase of its plans for a €1bn data centre in north-west Dublin.
This follows An Bord Pleanála dismissing an appeal lodged by engineer Allan Daly, who is based in Co Galway, giving Amazon’s Irish firm, Amazon Data Services Ireland Limited (Adsil) the green light for the data centre.
But its latest plan for the Dublin district of Mulhuddart, which it has dubbed Project, is its most ambitious to date in Ireland.
Adsil, which seeks to build a single data centre of 223,000 sq ft, has told Fingal County Council, however, it might eventually build seven more data centres on the 26-hectare IDA-owned site.
Mr Spain stated that 400 people would be employed in the 12 to 18 months it would take to build the data centre.
