Green Energy Geothermal (GEG), has reported the successful conclusion of its contract to supply and build a 5 MW turbine-generator package for the Bjarnarflag geothermal power plant in the Northeast of Iceland.

GEG was awarded the contract by Icelandic national power company Landsvirkjun to design, manufacture and supply a replacement back-pressure turbine and generator, which was delivered, installed and commissioned on site.

With higher efficiency of the new plant, the plant now provides 2 MW more in power generation capacity, utilising the same amount of steam.
