Crystal Lagoons® Competitive Advantage
Crystal Lagoons® state-of-the-art technology, created by forward thinking biochemist Fernando Fischmann, has been patented worldwide, in over 190 countries. With an ever growing portfolio, the firm has over 2.000 patents applied to all its projects, both real estate and Public Access Lagoons™, also known as PAL™, in over 60 countries on all five continents, making the Miami-based multinational the only firm capable of creating and maintaining crystalline lagoons of unlimited size.
The most important advantages offered by Crystal Lagoons technology are its low construction and maintenance costs, the use of any type of water source and its low water consumption. This sustainable technology has made the firm’s lagoons come to be known as the World’s Top Amenity, and has improved millions of people’s lives around the world.
This unique technology, which can use seawater, freshwater or brackish water, depending on its availability, also generate a safe environment that can be enjoyed by the entire family. This attracts people who normally do not practice watersports, due to the pleasant and safe environment that its idyllic beaches and paradisiac views offer.
The construction costs for a lagoon with Crystal Lagoons technology are very low, even lower than those of a park of the same size. In addition, operating costs are very low, due to the efficient use of safe additives and energy. This revolutionary technology also stands out for its low water consumption, as it operates in a closed circuit, needing only to replace the water that is lost through evaporation. In comparison, a 1-hectare lagoon consumes only 50% of the water required for the maintenance of a park of the same size, and a lagoon of average size consumes around 30 times less than a golf course.
Furthermore, the American firm’s evaporation control technology can be used in the lagoons, producing even lower evaporation and water consumption.
As an additional advantage is that the lagoons can capture direct rainwater, reducing the amount of water needed to compensate for the loss by evaporation, and in some locations of intense rainfall, it is estimated that the lagoons can be refilled only with rainwater, practically without requiring additional water.
