Facebook Zeewolde: Dutch Government Decide Not To Sell Zeewolde Land To Meta

Jun 14, 2022 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

The Dutch Government has revealed that it will not be selling the land in Zeewolde to Meta. Meta had initially earmarked the land to develop a massive data center. The Dutch Government partially owns the land in question. However, Meta hoped to reach an agreement to take over the land to develop a 200MW data center across five halls.

Meta had been facing severe opposition from the state government, local government, and the Dutch Senate. Besides, the Senate voted against Meta’s data center plan on the site, making the company put the development on hold. Aside from the Government’s refusal to sell the land to Meta, there have been regulations in the country and the province limiting the development of data centers. This new development has posed a significant obstacle for Meta’s data center development in Zeewolde.
