New industrial park to be built in western Slovakia.

By bne IntelliNews February 5, 2010
The cities of Levice and Liptovsky Mikulas, western Slovakia , planned the construction of new industrial zone in their respective areas. Specifically, the former was looking to restructure a brownfield site of a former fruit and vegetable warehouse at its premises with a total area of 29,626 sqm to an industrial park. It was to submit an application for a construction permit by Feb 15. Levice mayor Stefan Misak stated that there were already two Slovak investors, which had expressed interest in the new facility. He added that the city would also request a non-refundable contribution for the project from the economy ministry, which should be used to purchase the land and open the way for the industrial park project implementation. The Liptovsky Mikulas city, located in northern Slovakia , intended to apply for EU funds financing for the construction of an industrial park in the area. Total investment costs for the project were estimated at EUR 6mn with the co-financing share of the town reaching EUR 300,000. The park should occupy 2.6ha and contain two halls for environment-friendly production from the light industry. Construction was expected to start in December 2010 and the completed park would create 240 new job positions.
