Facebook will construct a 56,500 square meter data center in Odense, Denmark, informs the tech company Thursday during a press conference at Odense city hall.

"This concerns hundreds of millions of dollars. I can't be more specific than that," said Facebook spokesperson Niall McEntegart at the press conference, cited by local media Fyens Stifttidende.
