Espoo datacenter project overview

Datacenters provide the physical infrastructure for the technology we depend on at work and in our personal lives. Whenever you open an app on your phone, join a virtual classroom or meeting, snap and save photos, or play a game with your friends online, you are using a datacenter. Local businesses, government, hospitals, and schools rely on datacenters every day to deliver you goods and services.

EIA public presentations for the Finland datacenter sites have been completed

As a part of the Environmental Impact Assessment, Microsoft’s experts held public presentation in each of the three datacenter sites: Espoo in May 2023, Vihti in June 2023 and Kirkkonummi in August 2023. The public presentations have now been completed.

In all three public presentations, Microsoft gave an overview of the projects, presented the EIA Scoping Document and answered questions. Thank you for all who participated in the events and contributed and to everyone who gave an input to the EIA process.

The Environmental Impact Assessment Procedure is currently ongoing and a public presentation of the Environmental Impact Assessment Report for each site will be held next year.
