Of those 20, the company looks at potential 9 geothermal projects with a combined power generation capacity of 625 MW.
The company pushes ahead with its geothermal development plans at Bjarnarflag and Theistareykir in the Northeast of Iceland. For the past years, Landsvirkjun has been preparing plans for three to four power plants in these locations.
