Google to Build $773 Million Center in Dutch Data Hub

Google Inc., the world’s largest Internet-search provider, plans to spend about 600 million euros ($773 million) over the next four years in building a data center in the Netherlands for its European operations.

“We know this area well, there is available land and there is a favorable climate for us,” Francois Sterin, director of global infrastructure at Google, said at a news conference today in Eemshaven, 215 kilometers (133 miles) northeast of Amsterdam. Google will employ about 150 permanent workers once the job is completed in the area, Sterin said.
