Microsoft will start building its datacenter in Køge


After the first datacenter construction for Microsoft has been started in Roskilde, we’re starting on a second location which is in the municipality of Køge.

In December 2020, Microsoft announced its intention to build a data center in Denmark powered by 100% renewable energy, which will give Danish customers faster access to microsoft’s cloud, world-class security and the ability to store data in the country. The region will include three new data center facilities in East Zealand. In Køge our general contractor Exyte started the mobilization and will prepare the construction site, begin excavation work and continue the construction of the data center.

Expected duration:

  1. Site setup/excavation/earthworks ~4 months
  2. Construction/layout/commissioning ~ 18.5months, followed by handover to operation

Together with our general contractor Exyte, we will take all necessary considerations to ensure that the environment and the local community are disturbed as little as possible throughout the construction period.

We will keep the community updated through this site with the latest information. We encourage you to look at the factsheets and FAQ section when you have specific questions. Our project team will be available to help inform you about the project.
