Alphabet-owned Google plans to invest $1 billion to build a data center in the United Kingdom.

Google said Thursday the data center would be located on a 33-acre site purchased in 2020 in Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire.

The company said the data center would support services to Google Cloud customers and Google users in the UK.

"This new data center will help meet growing demand for our AI and cloud services and bring crucial compute capacity to businesses across the UK while creating construction and technical jobs for the local community," said Alphabet and Google Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat in a statement.

Google said the new facility would be ready for off-site heat recovery.
