In this short video introduction, Elín Hallgrímsdóttir of Icelandic engineering group Mannvit, provides some overview on her company and her work on the Geothermal Risk Mitigation Facility (GRMF) for Africa.

Icelandic engineering group Mannvit has been providing technical consultancy to the Geothermal Risk Mitigation Facility for Eastern Africa (GRMF)

The Facility is funded by German and international development banks, and its role is to mitigate risk in the first stages of geothermal projects.
