In Fredericia, Google believes they have found a great business community and a location with existing infrastructure that fits what they are looking for when they set out to build an efficient, modern data center.

According to Google the Fredericia data center will be among the most energy efficient data centers in Denmark to date, taking advantage of advanced machine learning to make sure every watt of electricity counts.

A new data center also leads to new job creation. Consultancy firm Copenhagen Economics (CE) has forecasted the impact the Fredericia data center will have on the local economy: according to CE, the construction will support 1,450 jobs per year in 2018-2021. Once operational, around 150-250 people are expected to be employed at the site in a range of roles—including computer technicians, electrical and mechanical engineers, catering and security staff. And, given increased economic activity expected in the area, there’s also an effect on job sectors like retail trade, hotels and transportation.

With construction work expected to run through 2021, Fredericia will be Google’s fifth data center in Europe, joining the company's other sites in Ireland, Finland, the Netherlands and Belgium.
