Landsvirkjun National Power Company

Landsvirkjun National Energy Company of Iceland: a new submarine power cable from Iceland could supply Europe with clean, renewable energy.

Iceland Cool had the privilege of announcing a major development by Landsvirkjun in the renewable energy sector. A new Submarine Power Cable from Iceland could supply Europe with clean, renewable energy.

Landsvirkjun is Iceland’s National Power Company and the largest producer of renewable energy generated from hydro-electric and geothermal power sources. The company is 100% owned by the Icelandic State and has been in operation for over 45 years.

Iceland currently holds a unique position among European nations in its potential to increase reliable electric energy production from renewable energy resources. Landsvirkjun has proposed a submarine cable to Europe across the North Atlantic seabed in order to increase energy production to continental Europe.

In addition to the Submarine Power Cable, Landsvirkjun announced that a working group will be appointed to research the potential impact on social, environmental, legal, and technical factors of laying a submarine cable between Iceland and the British Isles and or mainland Europe.

Iceland Cool continued the working relationship with Landsvirkjun on several press releases, their annual report and website content.
