Helsinki: US Internet giant Google Inc. announced on Monday a further €450 million ($607 million) investment to expand its data centre in Hamina in southeast Finland.The announcement brings Google’s total investment in the centre to €800 million.“As demand grows for our products, from YouTube to Gmail, we’re investing hundreds of millions of euros in expanding our European data centres,” said Anni Ronkainen, the head of Google Finland, in a statement.Dieter Kern, the head of the data centre—which has a unique cooling system using water from the Bay of Finland—said Finland’s cold climate and its well developed infrastructure played an important role in the decision.In common with other data centres located in the region, Google has also been keen to promote the centre as a clean energy site as most of its electricity comes from a nearby wind farm.
