Dubai, 17 September 2014: Multinational Crystal Lagoons Corp. the patented technology developer of giant crystalline lagoons has outlined the company’s commitment to the Middle East with the unveiling of their new regional office in Dubai at Cityscape Global.
Patented in 160 countries worldwide, Crystal Lagoons has projects in the region totalling $12.5 billion and has already showcased developments in the luxury resort of Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt, two developments in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia – including the recently launched Prince Sultan Cultural Centre, two developments in Dubai as well as projects in Jordon and Oman.
“Developers are highly impressed with the transformation Crystal Lagoons can make to any piece of land. Our technology has enabled client sites, with little previous value to be made, more valuable by the creation of waterfront and destination driven real estate,” said Kevin P Morgan, CEO, Crystal Lagoons.
The company’s cutting-edge technology, which was pioneered by Crystal Lagoons Corp. Founder and Chairman Fernando Fischmann, will be showcased at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One residential community, the lagoon has been flooded and is set to form the world’s largest manmade lagoon, covering 40 hectares, almost four-times bigger than the world’s largest existing lagoon.
“The initial stage of the lagoon at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One has been completed on schedule and it is no longer a concept, it is now a reality and I’m extremely confident the development will be a major success. The ambition of Dubai goes in hand-in-hand with Crystal Lagoons. Vision and recognising that something of this magnitude can be achieved has been prevalent throughout.
“We are extremely proud of our partnership with Meydan Sobha and believe this development will set a benchmark for the rest of the world. Crystal Lagoons also believes the timing of the launch of the project is quite unique as it will be enjoyed for all to see at the World Fair in 2020,” added Morgan.
It is through the use of technology that Crystal Lagoons’ designs are exceptionally sustainable. They use up to 100 times less chemicals than conventional swimming pools and consume up to 2% of the energy needed by standard filtration systems. In addition Crystal Lagoons use up to ten times less water than irrigating an 18-hole golf course and it can operate in any type of water, whether salt, fresh or brackish.
“Our lagoons are not just sustainable, they comply with the most stringent international water quality standards and our permanent telemetric monitoring, operation and control, ensures optimum water quality and an ecofriendly environment,” added Morgan.
