Ultrasonic buoys to treat algal blooms in The Netherlands

LG Sonic installed four ultrasonic algae control systems, MPC-Buoys, in recreational lake “de Zoetermeerse Plas,” located in South Holland, the Netherlands. This environmentally-friendly system controls toxic algal blooms with low-power ultrasound. It’s our first algae control project in our domestic market.

In December 2015 LG Sonic, the municipality of Zoetermeer, and water board Rijnland have officially announced the start of this collaborative project that aims to monitor and control harmful blooms in the recreational lake de Zoetermeerse Plas. Several regional and local press outlets attended the press conference.
