Crystal Lagoons is an international company with 15 offices around the world, which has developed and patented a state-of-the-art technology that enables crystal clear lagoons of unlimited sizes to be built and maintained at very low costs, offering an idyllic beach lifestyle anywhere in the world.
The company is also a leader in innovation and technology, focused on improving people’s lives by helping to solve some of the world’s biggest problems such as water scarcity, energy, pollution and lack of open public spaces.
Crystal Lagoons is the only company in the world able to provide this technology, patented in 190 countries. The technology is transforming real estate markets, and we also offer this amenity in the public sector, with its social concept that aims to transform cities into idyllic beaches, offering paradisiac views steps away from the homes of thousands of people.
After only one year of operation, Crystal Lagoons was valued at 1.8 billion dollars by the Boston Consulting Group, which is an international record. During recent years, it has experienced a dramatic increase in sales due to the opening of many new offices around the world, and we expect sales to keep increasing.
The Innovator’s Dream
The story about Fernando Fischmann’s entrepreneurship and the development of the first lagoon is inspiring, especially the way in which he overcame many problems and difficulties until he succeeded in developing the Crystal Lagoons technology and how he achieved local and international expansion in a short period of time. His story has become a case study in many renowned universities around the world.
In 1997, Fernando began planning the second home real estate development of San Alfonso del Mar in Algarrobo, a small town on Chile’s central coast. While the site featured beautiful ocean views and was close to the capital, Santiago, the local shoreline was unattractive due to its bitterly cold waters, the presence of large waves, and dangerous undercurrents that posed many risks to bathers. In fact, swimming was prohibited in that area due to the dangerous conditions.
To overcome these problems, he dreamed of creating a massive lagoon with crystal clear turquoise waters that would provide visitors with the chance to swim and enjoy watersports in a safe and clean environment. As a result, he began planning the San Alfonso del Mar development, where he engaged a well-known local company to provide a technology to maintain the lagoon with excellent water quality at low costs.
This company implemented a technology, but it did not work. Shortly after the initial filling of the lagoon, the water turned green and murky, and did not have the transparency or turquoise color he envisioned. The company he retained could not solve the problem, leaving Fernando with a built-out lagoon with poor water quality.
To solve this problem and in search of a technology that would allow him to achieve crystal clear water in this large lagoon at low costs, Fernando Fischmann met with world renowned companies throughout Europe, Australia, the United States, and many other countries. He was repeatedly told that the technology he was seeking did not exist and could not be developed.
The San Alfonso del Mar project included a 20 acre (8-hectare) lagoon with a volume of 250,000 m3 (66 million gallons), equivalent to 6,000 swimming pools. If conventional swimming pool technology were used, 6,000 filters and 6,000 doses of chlorine would be required to maintain it. This was economically unviable. Furthermore, the largest pools in the world in existence at the time, with more than 1 acre (about half a hectare) in water surface, had many problems and extremely high operational costs, which eventually caused them to close and cease their operations.
Since he is a trained biochemist, Fernando decided to conduct research himself. He created a laboratory for experimentation and analysis and, after 7 years, succeeded in developing the Crystal Lagoons technology. This revolutionary innovation enables the development and maintenance of crystal clear lagoons of unlimited sizes anywhere in the world, at very low costs. The technology has been patented worldwide to protect the innovation and to allow different options to be evaluated for commercialization.
San Alfonso del Mar was initially conceived as a second home development with a total of 400 units. However, after the Crystal Lagoons technology was applied in the project’s lagoon, the success was so big that it was decided to expand the development, reaching a total of 1,400 units and with prices twice as high as at the outset.
A completely new concept was created by Fernando: not a conventional swimming pool, this large crystal clear lagoon changed the local landscape in a revolutionary way, not only by creating a safe and attractive place for swimming and other water sports, but also by creating spectacular views and opportunities to engage in recreational activities, promenades, develop restaurants, among other facilities around the lagoon, transforming and invigorating the entire community.
San Alfonso del Mar, the first project in the world to employ this innovative technology, quickly established itself as the most successful second home resort in the southern hemisphere. The originality of this concept and technology was reinforced commercially when the crystal clear lagoon in San Alfonso del Mar, 20 acres (8 hectares) in size and 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) in length, was awarded the 2007 Guinness World Record for the largest crystal-clear man-made lagoon in the world.
In 2007, Fernando founded the company Crystal Lagoons, with the objective of marketing and commercializing this innovative concept and technology, initially focusing on real estate developments worldwide. Also, he needed to create a business model that would allow the success obtained in San Alfonso del Mar to be replicated in other real estate projects around the world. He developed a completely innovative model in the real estate market, which he defined under the concept of “selling intelligence”. So, using a royalty-based model, Crystal Lagoons licenses the technology and charges a percentage of the sales of the project. At the same time, it provides all the materials, equipment, and chemical products that are manufactured exclusively for Crystal Lagoons licensees.
Crystal Lagoons, led by Fernando, has continuously developed new water treatment technologies, and patented them in 190 countries worldwide. The company has also licensed the technology and partnered with the most important local and international real estate companies.
Today, it has a portfolio of more than 600 projects, in different stages of planning, design, construction or operation including urban, tourism, public, and industrial projects, in 60 countries. With presence in 5 continents, Crystal Lagoons’ projects can be found in the United States, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, Thailand, Indonesia, Jordan, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Spain, Australia, among other countries.
Given the innovative features of the technologies developed by Crystal Lagoons, the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) valued the company at US$1.8 billion after only one year of operation. It is important to highlight that none of the big technology companies like Facebook, Google, or Microsoft, have reached such a high valuation in such a short period of time.
As a result of creating a solution of global impact to overcome a problem that seemed impossible to solve, Crystal Lagoons has revolutionized people’s lifestyles around the world. Today, the company’s vision of quality of life is not just a dream but a reality for hundreds of thousands of families around the world living in their own tropical paradise.
