Korea Water Resources Corp, the South Korean conglomerate best known as K-water, has agreed to repair and upgrade water supply facilities in the war-damaged Kyiv suburb of Bucha and help build an industrial complex there, the Korea Herald reported, citing the company.

Under the agreement, signed during a visit by Bucha Mayor Anatolii Fedoruk to South Korea, K-Water will help develop technologies and plans for sustainable urban development, restoration, and modernization of water supply facilities, the newspaper reported. The work will also help Bucha build an industrial complex of around 34 square kilometers, according to the report.

The agreement further expands K-water's already significant presence in the reconstruction of Ukraine. In July this year, the company agreed to help with the reconstruction of the Kakhovka dam, which was destroyed in an explosion in June.

K-water also was chosen in August to design a master plan for restoration and creation of a ‘smart city’ in Uman, central Ukraine. The project, supported by the South Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport, is meant to prepare for further works to restore transportation, infrastructure and housing in Uman and develop a plan to create a ‘smart city’ after the war. The deadline for the design is April 2024.
