On 22 August 2012 Democo launched (in joint venture) the construction of 'MijnZwemparadijs' (my swimming paradise) as commissioned by Sportoase. The location for this 3.200 m² pool is the mine site on the Koolmijnlaan in Beringen.
It was designed by architect Luc Derycke from Ieper, who specialises in swimming pool complexes. He created a design in which the new pool merges into the site's industrial-archaeological character and the existing cooling towers.
The new complex includes a 25m pool, teaching pool, paddling pool, adventure pool, multipurpose spaces, changing rooms, showers and a cafeteria. The work is due to be completed by April 2014.
