Landsvirkjun Power's team has extensive experience covering all phases of planning and constructing power plants and energy transmission networks. We have carried out research, preparatory work, design and construction work on all hydroelectric installations and high-tension transmission lines that Landsvirkjun has built in Iceland since 1965.
Work relating to the preparation, design and construction of geothermal power plants has also been part of our operations.
Our team has, over the years, developed expertise in preparing and constructing hydroelectric and geothermal power plants and high-tension transmission lines. We have professional expertise in many fields, including hydrography and hydrology, cartography, geology, natural sciences and other specialist areas. Our team has the ability to turn an idea for a power plant or transmission system into a fully-fledged, smooth running construction project.
Landsvirkjun Power has a large number of project managers who have extensive experience of managing complex and hazardous projects. The construction of a power plant is among the most extensive construction projects undertaken in Iceland. For several decades, work of this type has benefited from comprehensive and efficient project management that has acquired attention from all around the world.
Our coordinated work procedures for preparing, operating and implementing projects help improve management and increase the company's financial efficiency.
Landsvirkjun Power carries out intensive environmental research relating to the planning, construction and operation of hydroelectric and geothermal power stations. A range of investigations are set in motion as part of any preparatory work. These investigations aim to increase understanding and gather information to be used during the planning and design phases and in environmental impact assessments. We also implement detailed monitoring research during the preparation and operation of power plants.
