LOWER AVERAGE TEMPERATURE
As Groningen is one of the most northern provinces in the Netherlands, it has a slightly lower average temperature than the rest of the Netherlands. Groningen has a sea climate, which means there is not much difierence between summer and winter temperatures. Most wind comes from the sea and the sea cools down and warms up very slowly, and this combination produces less of a temperature drop in winter than in areas with a continental climate.
The average temperature in the area of Green Dataport Eemshaven is relatively low because of its northerly location, and that makes it fractionally higher than the seawater that is present at a short distance. During the winter months, the average temperature is 42.8°F and during the summer period it is 60.3°F.
The climate in the Northern Netherlands is characterised by mild winters and cool summers. It is generally windy in Eemshaven and this wind can be used to cool data centers.
