AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Alfabet Inc., Google said on Monday it will invest an additional € 1 billion ($1.14 billion) for the construction of a data centre in the Netherlands, including a new facility in Middenmeer.
The company had earlier said it is spending 1.5 billion to build and expand a data center that is under construction in Eemshaven, the Netherlands.
In a meeting with reporters, Joe Kava, Google’s head of data centres, said the two sites will employ about 500 people once they have been built.
