  • Google kicks off construction on $600M Alabama data center

Crews have already begun construction, and Bridgeport Mayor David Hughes says the town is already seeing an economic boom.

"Bridgeport is just the flawless balance of land, power, water and a great community for the workforce", said Brenda Standridge, Google's Alabama project manager. "Therefore we ask that Project Maven be cancelled, and that Google draft, publicize and enforce a clear policy stating that neither Google nor its contractors will ever build warfare technology".

The tech giant plans to hold a groundbreaking ceremony Monday at the 350-acre plant site along the Tennessee River in Bridgeport.

The former TVA plant shut down in 2015 after generating coal-fired electricity for TVA for 63 years.

"The construction jobs will be several hundred construction jobs, and it's a great company".

Google will procure 78.8 megawatts (MW) of solar energy for its data center in Douglas County, Georgia as part of efforts to leverage renewable energy in every market it operates in.

Before joining Google, Giannandrea had stints at Netscape and General Magic.

"Google is committed to investing in Jackson County to create new economic and educational opportunities for the people of Alabama and the surrounding region", said Dr. Nan Boden, Senior Director and Head of Global Technology Partners for Google Cloud.

Google said it selected the Jackson County site because it offered the right combination of energy infrastructure and developable land. Everyday billions of people use Google to search for something.

Google's data center in Jackson County will become Alabama's first large-scale data center.

Google also said its Jackson County data center will feature state-of-the-art energy efficiency.

Google is partnering with TVA to source renewable power and will utilize the site's existing electricity transmission lines to enhance the data center's reliability and bring in clean power. Gov. Kay Ivey, Google executives and others will be on hand for the event. "This commitment by this fine company will not just grow this business; it will help grow this community".

"With this generous grant, Google has again proven itself a community partner and a supporter of the Jackson County School District", said Kevin Dukes, superintendent of the Jackson County School System.
