Google is investing a further €1 billion in the Netherlands, building a new data centre in Agriport and expanding its Eemshaven site. The new data centre will employ 125 people when operational. The company did not share details on the data centre’s specifications.
The decision brings Google’s total data centre investment in the Netherlands to €2.5 billion, and is the second expansion of the Eemshaven site; the company also invested €500 in March 2018. It is the first time the company has built two data centres on separate sites in the same European country. (It has five European data centres).
