In their search for more space to build data centers in Europe, Google has ended up once again in the Netherlands. The internet giant is investing an additional 1 billion euros in the construction of a new data center in Agriport.
This will offer opportunities to use residual heat, but also begs the questions of how things are concerning the lack of electricity which was mentioned before.
Besides the construction of a new data center in Agriport, a data center in the Eemshaven will also be expanded using the money. Google has now invested a total of 2.5 billion euros in Dutch datacenters.
The total amount of Google data centers in the north of North Holland will be two after the latest investment. Microsoft also owns two data centers in the area.
