The Dutch manufacturer, is a privately owned company with the mission to eliminate harmful chemicals in the environment.
Therefore, the company developed a chemical-free technology that controls algae and prevents biofouling
growth in lakes, reservoirs, treatment plants, and other applications by making use of specific ultrasonic sound
The company has been coordinator in various European projects and has won several innovation awards.
The technology, offered by the Dutch manufacturer, is unique in combining online water quality monitoring, web-based software and ultrasonic technology to provide an environmentally and state-of-the-art treatment against algae which allows the treatment of different types of algae and to treat large water surfaces.
The algae control devices from the Dutch company are underwater systems that emit ultrasound waves in order to control common types of algae, including the toxic blue-green algae, powered by solar energy. They are developed in collaboration with several renowned universities and research institutes.
The effects of the ultrasonic algae control products have been tested by various universities and are proven to be safe for humans, fish, plants, zooplankton, and insects.
How the company uses online water quality monitoring to control algae?
1. Monitor water quality
In lakes and bigger ponds the presence of different algae species is in a state of constant change. Therefore it is important to monitor the presence of the current algae species in order to optimize the treatment. It gives a complete overview of the water quality by collecting the following parameters every 10 minutes: Chlorophyll α (green algae), Phycocyanin (blue-green algae), pH, Turbidity, Dissolved Oxygen, and Temperature.
2. Predict algae blooms
The collected data is delivered in real time via radio, GPRS, or 3G to a web-based software. Based on our developed algorithm we are able to modify the ultrasonic program to the specific water conditions and predict an algal blooms a few days ahead.
3. Control algae
Based on the received information, the ultrasonic program can be activated according to the water conditions and type of algae present. This way, it is possible to eliminate existing algae and prevent the growth of new algae.
The Dutch manufacturer is looking for trusted partners/agents with experience and a network in water (e.g. lakes, ponds, drinking water reservoirs and/or irrigation reservoirs), water treatment plants and/or cooling towers. The partner will be offered a commercial agency agreement and will be responsible for selling and promotion and provide after-sales services and technical support.
