The characteristics of this ecosystem cause that there is a risk, during the warmer time of the year, of the appearance of stratification, which is harmful to the ecosystem that surrounds it. This occurs when creating a warm, oxygen-rich surface layer on the one hand, and a cold, oxygen-poor deep layer on the other. If the concentration of oxygen falls to levels of anoxia, most of the organisms in the bottoms die, resulting in an increase of nutrients in the environment and causing the proliferation of bacteria and algae that are positioned in the surface layer of the lagoon. and further enhance this process.
The most efficient, sustainable, and safest way to avoid eutrophication is through ultrasound control that limits the growth of algae. To implement the system it is necessary to place ultrasound generating devices that maintain the lagoon’s ecosystem at sustainable levels.
The system will be supplied from microgeneration networks from three different origins: hydraulic, wind and solar. In the hydraulic part, it will be the Hidrotornillo © who replaces the system with energy, taking advantage of a small waterfall existing at the exit of the dam. This Hidroscrew © will produce and deliver a constant power and clean the XX kW system.
The three connected demonstrators allow supplying sufficient energy thanks to the measurement and control infrastructure to improve the energy efficiency of all the devices that are part of this network.
