Google: Luxembourg's Ministry of Environment and Google's delayed data center

Dec 14, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Google's Bissen data center project has gone quiet, according to Luxembourg's government, which says that it currently has no contact with the giant. The Ministry of Environment had requested a report on the environmental impact of the project, however Google also hasn't applied for a building permit, the deadline for which is the beginning of 2024.

The facility, a €1 billion ($1.05m) data center, if given the green light, would be one of the largest developments of any kind in the country and the largest single user of electricity.

Back in May, Minister of the Economy Franz Fayot said that "the way is free for Google to tackle the next steps," but added, "I cannot tell you today when these next steps will be taken."
