In the area east of Lima, Peru, annually recurring rains due to the El Niño phenomenon caused mudslides and landslides in the past. At the end of February 2016, Geobrugg installed 22 debris flow barriers that today protect people and infrastructure in the nine valleys of the Chosica Region.
22 barriers were installed between mid-November 2015 and end of February 2016. Noteworthy are the means of transportation: By air from Switzerland to Lima and by muscle power over the final kilometers. The light weight of the systems was advantageous for both types of transport.
Local authorities show details of the lagest installation of this kind of Latin America in a film (in Spanish).
