The new ultrasound MPC-Buoy

Blue-green algae successfully monitored and controlled by using ultrasound with new MPC-Buoy

The MPC-Buoy improved the water quality in a drinking water reservoir in the UK. The drink water company Sembcorp Bournemouth Water (SBW) has announced in a press release that after the installation of the MPC-Buoy a ‘dramatic reduction’ in the concentration of algae was experienced.

A lake in Poland showed a substantial improvement in the water quality after the installation of two MPC-Buoys. The level of cyanobacteria cells (blue-green algae) was nine times lower compared to similar lakes in the surrounding.

The patented MPC-Buoy provides a unique and environmental-friendly solution for algae and cyanobacteria control by combining continuous water monitoring, telemetering and ultrasound technology. The MPC-Buoy is successfully installed in Canada, the UK, the USA, Poland and Ireland. The MPC-Buoy is effective in lakes, ponds, dams and other applications.
