 Apple abandoning the $1 billion Ireland data center plan is too slow to approve.


In February 2015, Apple announced plans to build the data center in Athenry, a rural area in western Ireland, to make use of nearby green energy. But project planning was opposed locally, which delayed the approval of the project. The high court of Ireland ruled in October last year that the data center could be constructed and rejected the appeal of the opposition. Subsequently, the opponents submitted the appeal to the Supreme Court of Ireland. Before the Irish Supreme Court held a hearing, apple said in a statement published on Thursday, although we did our best, the Procrastination of the approval process forced us to make other plans, and we will no longer advance the construction of the data center. Apple said, though disappointing, this setback will not weaken our enthusiasm for Irelands future projects, because our business continues to grow. Apple claims to expand its European headquarters in CountyCork, Ireland. At present, Apple has 6000 employees here. Ireland has a strong dependence on foreign multinationals such as apple, which have created 1/10 jobs in the whole Irish economy. At the same time, Ireland regards such major investments as data centers as a means to retain these multinational companies. The government is revising its planning regulations, making the data center a strategic infrastructure to enable the planning process to be completed more quickly. There is no doubt that the apple decision is very disappointing, especially for the arsenai Lai and the western part of Ireland, HeatherHumphreys, Minister of business and business, said in a statement. The government has made every effort to support the investment. Such delays, at least, highlight the need to improve the efficiency of our national planning and legal procedures.
