HAMINA, Finland Nov 4 Google said on
Monday it would invest another 450 million euros ($607 million)
over the next few years on a data centre in southeastern
Finland, a boost for a country struggling with Nokia's decline
and weakness in paper and steel industries.
The investment is in addition to 350 million euros the
world's No. 1 Internet search company has already spent on the
data centre, built on the site of paper company Stora Enso's
former mill in Hamina, Finland.
Google bought the mill in 2009, turning it into one of its
most efficient data centres by taking advantage of the Bay of
Finland's naturally chilly seawater to cool its servers.
