A giant blue lagoon will soon be a reality near Quebec, Canada. The city of Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, an hour north of this city, could be home to one of the largest heated lagoons in the world.
A ‘Blue Lagoon’ in Canada
Thus, as part of the geoLAGON housing development, a giant Iceland-style geothermal lagoon (like the Blue Lagoon) is planned for the small town of Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, near Canada’s first Club Med Resort, the resort of Mountain.
The open-air lagoon will feature a patent-pending heating system that will keep the waters at a temperature of 39 degrees Celsius even during the winter, when temperatures drop below 0 degrees Celsius. The waters of the lagoon will cover about 12,000 square meters.
attractive for tourism
The project, called geoLagoon, is based on Iceland’s world-popular geothermal lagoons , and its owner and CEO Louis Massicotte’s vision includes four such lagoons to be built in Canada alone.
Designed to be the largest of its kind in the world and blend in with the natural landscape, the geoLagon project also includes hundreds of surrounding luxury homes to form a village that will be entirely energy self-sufficient.
There is talk of geothermal energy, solar energy and biomass, but the details of the technologies put into operation will be announced in the coming months, comment those responsible for the project.
“As an entrepreneur, I have chosen to try to be an agent of change by creating fully self-sufficient villages using solar, geothermal, biomass and our patent-pending thermal reservoir that will sit under the lagoon and store hot water at 70°C. . to help heat village huts,” said Louis Massicotte, founder of geoLAGON villages. “Quebec is in a unique position to show the world that self-sufficiency in renewable energy is a real business option, particularly in the tourism industry.”
