Google to spend further 1bn euros to build Dutch data centers

AMSTERDAM: Alphabet Inc.’s Google  said on Monday it will invest an additional 1 billion euros ($1.14 billion) to build data centers in the Netherlands, including a new facility in Middenmeer.

The company had previously said it is spending 1.5 billion euros to build and then expand a data center currently under construction in Eemshaven, Netherlands.

On a call with reporters, Joe Kava, Google’s chief of data centers, said the two sites will employ around 500 people once they are built.
