Crystal Lagoons opens Mideast HQ in Dubai22 September, 2014 / News
Multinational Crystal Lagoons Corporation, the patented technology developer of giant crystalline lagoons, has outlined the company’s commitment to the Middle East with the launch of its new regional office in Dubai, UAE.
Patented in 160 countries worldwide, Crystal Lagoons has projects in the region worth $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,” remarked its CEO Kevin P Morgan.
The company’s cutting-edge technology, which was pioneered by Crystal Lagoons founder and chairman Fernando Fischmann, will be showcased at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One residential community, during the Cityscape Global exhibition, which takes place from September 21 to 23, in Dubai.
The massive project will boast luxury residences and deliver a phenomenal range of features and activities including parks, man-made beaches, water sports, and even a world-class equestrian club with riding trails. The development will also feature a promenade with a wide selection of stores, restaurants, cafes, lively bistros and entertainment options.
“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,” stated Morgan.
The lagoon, he said, 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.
“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, said Morgan.
“They use up to 100 times less chemicals than conventional swimming pools and consume up to two per cent of the energy needed by standard filtration systems. In addition, it uses up to 10 times less water than irrigating an 18-hole golf course and it can operate in any type of water, whether salt, fresh or brackish,” he explained.
“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,” he added.
