Canada Is Building the World’s Largest Geothermal Lagoon—and It Will Be Heated Year-Round


For a longer period of time, Iceland may not be the only nation that comes to mind when discussing geothermal lagoons.

According to New Atlas, this is because Canadian entrepreneurs intend to construct the largest geothermal lagoon in the world. If everything goes according to plan, a spa resort made up of hundreds of chalets will be centered around the artificial body of water.

The construction, which will be known as geoLagon, will be situated in Quebec’s Charlevoix region. It will supposedly be 130,000 square feet in size, surpassing Iceland’s renowned Blue Lagoon by 37,000 square feet. All year long, the water will be kept at 102 degrees Fahrenheit, which will be especially wonderful during the winter when the nighttime lows are frequently below freezing.

The “large Thermos” heating system will be used to warm the geoLagoon. The arrangement produces heat that is subsequently stored in a thermal reservoir below the lagoon using geothermal, biomass, photovoltaic, and solar systems. The project, including the lagoon and neighboring community, will become completely energy independent thanks to the system, which may even be able to supply energy to other places.

 

 

“This is one of the keys to our recipe,” geoLagon CEO Louis Massicotte told the website. “I have a patent pending on this huge Thermos under our pool.”

There will be clusters of solar-powered houses all around the lagoon. The chalets will be offered for short-term rentals because the project’s creators want geoLagon to become a popular tourist destination. Approximately 80% of them have already been leased by investors. Even while the artificial lagoon ought to be enough to entice most visitors, the community is only around an hour’s drive from Quebec City. The capital of the province offers a thriving cultural scene, superb food, and convenient access to a range of recreational pursuits, including golfing, skiing, and whale watching.

GeoLagon will be built in three stages, the first of which will start in March of 2019. Half of the houses will be erected initially, followed by the construction of the lagoon and the remaining cottages. The entire project should be finished in around 18 months.
