Google has today announced a new set of plans to build a new Google Data Centre in Eemshaven, Netherlands, costing the company about €600 million.
The announcement was made on the European Google blog, and came alongside the news that the company will be providing work for more than 1000 workers during the construction.
Google says that construction will start in the first half of 2016, and is said to to be fully operational by the end of 2017 according to Google.
At that point the data centre will provide employment for over 150 people, with both full-time and contractual positions for IT technicians, electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, catering, facilities and security staff.
Google has this week announced plans to build a new Netherlands Google Data Centre based in Eemshaven, for the cost of around €600 million or $770 million.
“The new Dutch data centre will benefit from the latest designs in cooling and electrical technology. It will be free-cooled – taking advantage of natural assets like cool air and grey water to keep our servers cool. Our data centers use 50% less energy than a typical datacenter – and our intention is to run this new facility on renewable energy.” Google said on its announcement post.
“This will be Google’s fourth hyper efficient facility in Europe. Importantly, demand for Internet services remains so strong that the new building does not mean a reduction in expansion elsewhere. Our expansion will continue in Dublin in Ireland, in Hamina in Finland, and in St. Ghislain in Belgium. Our existing rented datacenter facility in Eemshaven also will continue to operate.”
