ON Power‘s Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant is located in the Hengill volcanic area in the southwest of Iceland. It is one of the country’s largest geothermal areas and it‘s common to feel seismic activity in the area.

The tour starts with a ride up a volcano where the tectonic plate boundaries of Europe and America are obvious. We will also stop at a bore hole and learn about the wonders of our exceptional geothermal energy.

The Hellisheidi Power Plant is one of the world‘s largest geothermal plants and once there, we will see how the
volcano‘s energy is transformed into electricity and hot water for district heating.

A Geothermal Resource Park is under development at Hellisheidi. Already silica-based health products are being
produced and cutting-edge science and skills are being utilized to mineralize CO2 in the basaltic bedrock underneath the plant. More recent development involves algae cultivation.
