Google invested close to EUR 600 million in building a new data centre in Hamina, Finland, according to local online publication yle.fi citing Google's country director for Finland Antti Jarvine. This brings Google's total investments in Hamina to EUR 1.4 billion, including the EUR 800 million invested in its first data centre in Hamina between 2011 and 2013.
