Landsvirkjun unveils plans for 4-MW wind power research project
Nov 25, 2011 - Icelandic national power company Landsvirkjun said Thursday it intended to erect two 2-MW wind turbines next year to evaluate the feasibility of wind energy development in Iceland.
The company has identified as suitable several areas and is looking for sites close to transmission systems and services. A study to assess if it is possible to build two 45-m (148 ft) turbines is currently in progress.
Landsvirkjun said it planned to construct the 2-MW turbines between the company's Burfell and Sultartangi power stations in the latter part of 2012. The project is pending the necessary permissions.
