Google to invest €600m in new data centre in Finland

Google announced on Monday that it has invested close to 600 million euros in building a new data centre in Hamina, Finland. 

The new data centre will be located on the premises of the former Summa paper factory lot, just like the first data centre in Hamina that Google opened in 2011. This brings Google’s total investments in Hamina to 1.4 billion euros.

Hamina, a town and municipality, is located about 145 kilometres east of the Finnish capital Helsinki and has a population of slightly over 20,000 people.
