To the northeast of the province of Entre Ríos in Argentina is Federación, a municipality next to the reservoir formed by the Salto Grande dam.

Regularly the city port has problems with blooms of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria). Strong foul smells and unsightly formations affect the recreational area and the quality of the water of the coastal area of ​​the city, damaging the tourist activity in the region.

Since 2007, Comisión Técnica Mixta de Salto Grande has increased the vigilance and permanent study of the beaches, which is why in 2016 under the objective of studying the technical-economic feasibility of methodologies for controlling algal blooms, LG Sonic’s MPC-Buoy was acquired as the first binational experience (Argentina-Uruguay).

Four years since the start of our cooperation, we are proud to share what specialists from the Environmental Management Area of ​​Salto Grande, and other stakeholders had to share about their experiences with LG Sonic.

“The data obtained in the continuous monitoring of the MPC-Buoy were compared to laboratory and it made possible to validate this type of technology with in-situ sensors (real time) as reliable and appropriate tools for evaluating the water quality, allowing us to speed up and facilitate the management of information in time and form for our region of Salto Grande.”

“In open water systems, LG Sonic raises one of the best responses within
the existing technologies on the market, sustainable over time.”
