Apple has abandoned plans to build a massive new data centre in Ireland

The iPhone maker first announced plan to build the 1.8 million square foot facility in 2015, estimating that it would be operational by 2017, but the $1 billion project was repeatedly delayed by planning appeals.

“Despite our best efforts, delays in the approval process have forced us to make other plans and we will not be able to move forward with the data center,” Apple said in a statement.

Apple said it remained committed to Ireland, which is home to its European headquarters. The company is building two data centers in Denmark, including one announced in 2017.

“While disappointing, this setback will not dampen our enthusiasm for future projects in Ireland as our business continues to grow,” the company said.

Heather Humphreys, the country’s business minister, said that she “very much” regretted Apple’s decision.

“These delays have, if nothing else, underlined our need to make the State’s planning and legal processes more efficient,” she said in a statement.
