Iceland: Climeon Geothermal "Heatpower" Plant in Fludir Two Months from Launch

First geothermal site approved by customer (News Release)

Swedish company Climeon has received its first geothermal site approval from Varmaorka. Kopsvatn 1, outside Fludir, it is the first geothermal power plant that uses Climeon’s Heat Power system. Varmaorka has now approved the site through a Site Acceptance Test (SAT).

The Site Acceptance Test also marks the start of a two-month testing period before complete site hand-over. For two months Climeon and Varmaorka will evaluate the continuous operation of the power plant. After this period, Climeon will do a final site hand-over to Varmaorka, meaning that the power plant will have taken about twelve months from groundbreaking to hand-over.
