Facebook seeks $6B to expand data center

Business

LOS LUNAS, N.M. (KRQE) – Facebook’s Los Lunas data center is looking to expand. Greater Kudu LLC filed an application for $6.6 billion worth of industrial revenue bonds that could help double the size of the current data center.

It proposes up to six new buildings – two being built in the next two years, which cost $800 million to construct and equip. If approved, the new series is estimated to bring up to 300 new jobs and 30 more full-time employees once completed. Both the village and Greater Kudu are hoping a decision is reached by mid-March.
