It looks as though Facebook are the ones behind the huge data center construction project which is taking place in the town of Altoona, Iowa. This new data center will be the fourth company-owned data center.

The remaining three are in Prineville, Ore., Forest City, N.C., and Lulea, Sweden. The news comes from a report in the Des Moines Register, who says the data center will span 1.4 million square feet. There's no news on whether the social network would see any tax breaks or incentives for building in Iowa.

 

Facebook are also said to want some tax credits for using wind power, something that will require a vote by the state legislature. State officials have been quiet about the whole ordeal, but there was some large competition between Iowa and Nebraska to win the deal.
