Google Data Center (Finland)
Google chose a former paper mill for its excessive floor space and proximity to the Gulf of Finland. The Gulf provides a constant supply of frigid water, which is pumped through a tunnel before it's turned into fresh water. The fresh water is sent to cool the servers before being remixed and cooled once more to go back into the bay. This way, Google minimizes the environmental impact of warm water and avoids the need for refrigerants for cooling, reports Network World.
