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 area and it is common to feel seismicity through your feet.
The tour starts with a ride up the volcano where the tectonic borders 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 and inside 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 utilized to mineralize CO2 in the basaltic bedrock underneath the plant. More recent development involves algae cultivation.
