El data center (data center) proposed by Apple in Athenry (Ireland), by 850 millones de euros, it can be one of the friendliest projects with the environment that the company put a name, but this does not mean that the companies that are around are in favor of this project.
This month Apple will defend its plans during a hearing that will take place on Tuesday May 24 in Galway City, where representatives from Cupertino will try to convince An Bord Pleanála, an independent body that decides on the planning decisions of local authorities in Ireland.
The data center that would be built in about 500 acres, it would help Apple Music, the application store (App Store and Mac App Store), the messages that we send by iMessage, Maps and Siri much better. What happens is the potential impact it will have on local fauna (particularly bats and badgers), the amount of traffic this will bring, potential drainage problems, and concerns about the amount of power it requires. Apple had planned to start building on the site at late last year, although this has been delayed.
According to the report, such oral hearings are not unusual for large infrastructure projects in Ireland, but Apple will have to convince a group of planners that it is conducting its work in the greenest and most sustainable way possible. . As we can understand, the oratory he had Steve Jobs it would have been super important on these issues.
