The Google data centre project proposed for Bissen has now gone quiet, as the environment ministry says it currently has no contact with the internet giant.

The most recent exchange between the Ministry and Google covered demands for a report on the environmental impact of the project, which Google must submit as the proposed builder. However, this has not yet taken place.

In addition, Google is yet to apply for a building permit. The deadline for this application is 2024.

In her parliamentary response to a question submitted by the CSV, Minister Joëlle Welfring said she could not make any statements on whether the deadline may still be met with all the outstanding procedures.
