This one is a no brainer

Google said on Thursday it aimed to build a data centre at an old paper mill in southeastern Finland that it bought from Stora Enso for 40 million euros ($51.7 million).

"We are currently considering to build a data centre at this site," said Google spokesman Kay Oberbeck.

Google has dozens of data centres, or server farms, which consume significant amounts of energy, around the world.

In early 2008 Stora Enso closed down the loss-making Summa mill, which consumed 1,000 gigawatt hours of electricity per year, after nearly 53 years in operation.
