Apple investing billions in Denmark

“This is a clearly a benefit of Apple’s billion-kroner investment in the data centre in Foulum,” said foreign minister Kristin Jensen. “The partnership is a good example of how our targeted efforts to attract foreign companies to Denmark are producing results.” Foulum is a small town outside of Viborg where Aarhus University’s agricultural research facilities are located. Apple will provide financial support to the university’s research into biogas and how usable energy can be extracted from agriculture, whether it is fertiliser or straw supplied by local farmers. At a cost of approximately 6.3 billion kroner, the data centre is the largest foreign capital investment in Danish history. It will run on 100 percent renewable energy and power Apple’s online services. It is expected to be operational in 2017. (Copenhagen Post)
