Google to Build a New, $672Μ Data Centre


Google to Build a New, $672Μ Data Centre

Google has mentioned that their next data centre will be built in Hamina, Finland.

According to Reuters, “Google, which is owned by Alphabet Inc., already has a data centre in Hamina, where it invested 800 million euros to convert an old paper mill. Paper firm Stora Enso sold the site, which is close to the Russian border, to Google in 2009.”

Google seems to be very satisfied with the efficiency of its existing data centre in Hamina, as seawater from the Gulf of Finland is used in its cooling system, to decrease energy consumption.

Google has other European data centres in the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium and Denmark.
