 |  September 22, 2019

Google will make an additional investment of €3 billion (US$3.3 billion) over the next two years to expand its European data centers, Chief Executive Sundar Pichai said in Finland.

According to Reuters, the investment plan includes an additional €600 million (US$661.2 million) investment in the Hamina data center in Finland, bringing the total investment in the site to €2 billion (US$2.2 million), Finland’s Prime Minister Antti Rinne told the joint news conference.

“This is fantastic news for Finland,” Rinne said. 

Google already has one data center in Hamina, where it invested €800 million (US$881.6 million) to convert an old paper mill. It stated in May it would invest €600 million (US$661.2 million) in a new data center on the same site.
