Efforts are being made in cooperation with the power plants to invent or use known methods to bind gaseous substances underground or to remove materials from the steam and geothermal liquid.

The project

Landsvirkjun National Power has opened a new renovated Visitor Centre at Krafla Geothermal station in Northeast Iceland.  The visitors center, which has been the most popular of Landsvirkjun‘s centers for a number of years, tells the geothermal story of Iceland which started with the construction of Krafla Station in 1975.  The exhibition also sheds light on how the forces of Krafla Volcano are being harnessed by drilling to the core of the geothermal system capturing the super-hot underground fluids which are the key to the electricity production of the plant. 

This interactive exhibition was designed by Gagarin, in cooperation with the Landsvirkjun Power.  It is open seven days a week in June, July and August.

Further details on Krafla and other exhibitions of Landsvirkjun Power can be found at gestir.landsvirkjun.is
