The Ukrainian industrial company Energia Ltd. plans to construct a water purification facility in the Technological Industrial Zone Skopje 2 in Macedonia. The project will result in the opening of 150 new job positions, the Macedonian PM Nikola Gruevski announced. It will cost a total investment of 18 million euro. The construction is planned to begin in the second half of 2014.

The newly registered Macedonian division of Energia Ltd. will start operating the facilities mid 2015, the Director of Technological Industrial Development Zones, Viktor Mizo, added. They will be built on an area of about 20,000 square meters for which the company has already secured a location of about eight acres. The total volume of the annual production is pre-estimated to be around 20 million euro and it will be exported to countries in the Far East, America and Africa.

"The work of Macedonian diplomacy remains focused on the economy and attracting investments. This is a positive example that diplomacy can adequately and concretely contribute to attracting new investors," Macedonian Ambassador to Ukraine, Ilija Isalkovski further explained.
