Solid Waste Management - Municipality of Villa Nueva
  • Start year:
  • Type: Technical / Infrastructural
  • Status: Planning phase

The integral treatment of solid waste seeks not only the reduction of the same, but also the reuse and appropriate treatment in the final disposal. Directly, it will reduce the open decomposition of the same in urban areas, considerably avoiding the release of greenhouse gases, as well as the proliferation of vectors that endanger the health of citizens. The collection and proper management of the waste will also contribute to improve the city's decoration, which will make this a healthy city in different aspects. The construction of a new sanitary landfill and industrial park of recycling and transformation, with capacity to treat the waste and waste of more than 13 neighboring municipalities including Villa Nueva

Integrated Mobility Plan - Municipality of Villa Nueva
  • Start year:
  • Type: Technical / Infrastructural
  • Status: Under construction / set up

The integrated plan for mobility of Villa Nueva intends in its initial phase to renew the fleet of mass transport of the city, modernizing it through new systems of greater efficiency and with a quality control that provides to the neighbors a fair, profitable service and improve the quality of life to them.
It integrates four systems, these being: a) Buses b) Cable car c) Bicycles and d) Electric Taxis, which will be boosted through public private alliances.
The implementation of these systems will lead to ease of transit within the city, thus reducing fuel consumption and emissions generated by combustion. It will also improve the security conditions of the neighbors and give economic benefits to the city.

Energy efficiency in street lighting - Municipality of Villa Nueva
  • Start year:
  • Type: Technical / Infrastructural
  • Status: Completed

Between 2012 and 2013, the Municipality of Villa Nueva collected about 36.7 million quetzales through the Municipal Public Lighting Rate. However, in the same period, had paid 39 million quetzales by the electricity consumption of the lamps of the park network service.
In addition to the 4 million quetzales of difference between the energy consumed and the rate collected, the commune also paid 3.5 million quetzales in maintenance services to the network, in addition to other administrative expenses related to the service.
Even after these expenses, where the service was subsidized by more than 7 million quetzales per year, the quality and service continuity of the existing 16,286 lamps was constantly interrupted due to the inefficiency of existing lighting technology, Traffic, poor quality of the electrical fluid and other factors that caused the network to maintain more than 20% of the lamps turned off.
This situation caused annoyance to the neighbors due to the increase of the violence, the difficulty to transit at night and the existence of an inefficient service regarding the payment of taxes and the expected service.
As a result, the urgent need to modernize the service network park with new lamps of highly efficient technology was determined. This meant an investment of more than 100 million quetzales which could not be assumed by the Municipality at that time.
Once the problems and the solution were identified, the different alternatives that within the legal framework of the country were analyzed and the capacities of the Municipality could be viable. After this analysis, it was determined that awarding the service was the most appropriate option to achieve, through a public-private partnership.
This concession would consist of granting a company the complete management of the service, with the premise that, in order to achieve efficiency and profitability, it should completely replace the range of lamps in the network with lamps with high energy efficiency, light and long quality useful life.
After a national and international tender competition, the service administration was granted a Guatemalan company with technology from Israel.
From then on and under defined quality of service standards, the company made the total change of the 16,286 mercury vapor lamps and gave high pressure by new LED lamps, both in the downtown of the same as in the suburbs and villages.
After the replacement of luminaires in 2016, the results of the project have been highly visible and can be summarized as follows: 1) Reduction of 70% of energy consumption in the lamps. 2) Reduction of the heat production in the devices. 3) Improvements in lighting levels of streets, parks and other public spaces. 4) Reduction of delinquency points and areas of traffic accidents. 5) Service with less than 1% of faults.
This project has demonstrated that it is possible to find solutions to the different problems of cities through the involvement of private entities, thus benefiting the economy of municipalities, creating new jobs, providing quality public services and in a sustainable way with the environment.
