Alphabet Inc.’s Google said on Monday it will invest an additional 1 billion euros ($1.14 billion) to build data centres in the Netherlands, including a new facility in Middenmeer.

The company had previously said it is spending 1.5 billion euros to build and then expand a data centre currently under construction in Eemshaven, Netherlands.

On a call with reporters, Joe Kava, Google’s chief of data centres, said the two sites will employ around 500 people once they are built.
