A state economic development official has said that Iowa is competing with Nebraska to attract a US$1.2 billion data centre. Debi Durham, director of the state Partnership for Economic Progress, said she can’t name the company due to a confidentiality agreement. She said it’s not Google, Microsoft or IBM, all of which already have operations in Iowa.
“From a public relations standpoint, this is a company a lot of people want,” Durham said. Durham says the company is considering two locations in Iowa and one in Nebraska. It’s unclear what areas are being considered in Iowa, but Nebraska Sen. Annette Dubas of Fullerton said a rural area is being considered as the project site in her state.
