Apple states the data centre would begin operations in the second quarter of 2019 in Aabenraa in southern Denmark near the German border.
It will power Apple's online services, including the iTunes Store, App Store, iMessage, Maps and Siri for customers across Europe.
The data centre will be run on 100% renewable energy. Apple has contracted with a local clean energy developer to build a 30MW wind farm capacity to support the project.
This is the 2nd data centre in Denmark for Apple.
Energinet, the electrical utility provider, has stated that at Kassø, the utility network is connected both south to Germany, north to Norway and west to the windmill production at the west coast and the upcoming Cobra connection to the Netherlands.
