US internet company Google has invested 4.5 billion Danish crowns ($ 690 million) to build a new data center in Frederica, Denmark, the Danish conglomerate announced.

In addition, Google has actively sought new opportunities for green investments in Denmark and has evaluated a number of projects, the company said without disclosing the names of its business partners in the area.

Denmark is home to the huge wind power sector, which includes wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems and Orsted wind turbine developer.

In September, Google revealed that it had signed a ten-year agreement to buy renewable energy from three new wind turbines built in Finland and powered by one of the data centers.

The new data center in Fredericia will employ 150 to 200 employees after it is completed in 2021 according to the company's plans.

Last year, Fredericia bought another place in Denmark in Aabenraa near the data center planned by Apple. Facebook has similar plans for Denmark.
