Creation of an industrial park from scratch in Ukraine can cost $ 300 million, reported Vitaly Grusevich, chairman of the board of The Wall business club.
“We at The WALL have calculated how much it costs to create an industrial park on average if you build it from scratch. Only the construction of 10 production facilities and 5 logistics complexes, connection to communications and improvement of the territory is estimated at $ 300 million. At the same time, most of the costs are connected to communications and improvement of the territory, "- said Vitaly Grusevich.
At the same time, the expert recalled the encouraging news about the approval by the Ukrainian government of the bill, which they want to create the possibility of free connection of industrial parks, as small distribution systems, to power grids. He is convinced that such an initiative will have a positive impact on the cost of building an industrial park.
The Wall's Chairman of the Board also envisages reducing the cost of creating an industrial park by using old industrial territories and factories.
“According to estimates, the repair and replacement of existing communications may amount to about 25-30 million hryvnia. Such industrial territories are mainly located near cities, have a railway, an airport and a convenient transport interchange. They may also have access to river or even seaports. All this infrastructure is necessary for the correct functioning of the park and is important for the investor, ”says Vitaly Grusevich.
Among the successful projects that are developing according to this scheme, Vitaly Grusevich names an industrial park on the territory of a former valve plant in Ivano-Frankivsk, noting that the decision to make an investment zone here was very positive for the city's economy.
