Vihti datacenter project overview

30 May 2023

Join us on 6 June 2023 for Microsoft’s Vihti datacenter project’s environmental impact assessment programme’s public presentation

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.

Microsoft’s datacenter project in Vihti is starting an environmental impact assessment (EIA). As a part of this, Microsoft has submitted an EIA programme to Uusimaa area Ely center. Together with Ely center, Microsoft will present the EIA programme.

Participants are welcome to bring questions about the project.
