Facebook is planning second hyperscale campus in Denmark
Esbjerg is a small town on the west coast of Denmark, with a population of just over 71,000. It made the news in June, when it emerged that an unnamed company was eyeing the region as the location for a massive data center campus. Now, this company has been identified as Facebook, working through a subsidiary called Notitia Networks ApS. One of the reasons for choosing Esbjerg is the fact that the town will serve as the landing point for the upcoming Havfrue submarine cable that will link Denmark to the UK, Ireland and the US. Facebook is one of the principal investors in Havfrue. The company is already building a 55,000 square meter campus in Tietgenby near Odense – its third outside the US, after Luleå, Sweden, and Clonee, Ireland. The site will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy and recycle waste heat.
