Belize municipality, Central America, new town ‘La Democracia’"

The new town ‘La Democracia’, with a potential population of 10,000 needed to be built, so that the inhabitants from the city of Belize could be moved out of the hurricane endangered coastal zone. To ensure a secure drinking water supply, the installation of an entire new water supply plant in the jungle was required. The provision of the technical equipment had to be coordinated and controlled from Germany. All the technical equipment (mechanical, electronic, remote controlled, automated and process engineering) was, as far as possible, pre-assembled in Germany..
