The construction of a 90 MW power station is the first step in the utilization of the geothermal area at Theistareykir (North Iceland), which has an enormous potential with an estimated capacity of up to 200 MW.

In January 2015, Landsvirkjun and Milan-based Tamini signed a contract for the purchase of No.4 Power Transformers with a rated power of 50 MVA and a primary voltage of 220 kV.

The Tamini’s Transformers were delivered in May 2017 in the amazing landscape of Theistareykir and they have been successfully put in operation.
Environmental considerations have been heavily emphasized during both construction and operation, due to the uniqueness of the area and in order to minimize the impacts.
