United States tech giant Apple Inc. said on Tuesday that it is canceling plans for building its second data center in Denmark. The facility was originally planned in the country's Aabenraa Municipality and was valued at approximately $921 million. Apple pointed out that it will instead focus its resources on completing and expanding its other data center in Denmark, located in Viborg.

"As we near completion of our new Viborg data center in central Jutland, Denmark, we've decided to focus on growing that site instead of building an additional data center in Aabanraa," the company stated. Additionally, according to an official statement from the Aabenraa Municipality, Apple is planning to sell the land it originally intended for its second data center.

Apple shares traded 0.99% in the positive territory at 10:59 am ET.
