Alphabet’s Google will invest 4.5 billion Danish crowns or $690 million in building a new data center in Fredericia, Denmark.
Google has also decided to actively pursue new green investment opportunities in Denmark and is evaluating a number of projects within onshore and offshore wind energy and solar energy.
Google said in September it had signed a 10-year deal to buy renewable energy from three new wind farms that are being built in Finland and which will power one of its data centers.
The new data center in Fredericia will employ 150 to 200 staff once it is completed in 2021, according to the plans.
Besides Fredericia, last year Google bought another plot in Denmark, in Aabenraa, next to a planned Apple data center. Facebook has also planned a data center in Denmark.
