ON Geothermal Exhibition at Hellisheiðarvirkjun

- Museums

ON Power operates two geothermal power stations, Hellisheiði and Nesjavellir. Which are the largest and the second-largest geothermal power stations in Iceland, respectively. The geothermal area of Hellisheiði Geothermal Power Plant is a high-temperature area located at an active volcano, Hengill. The estimated maximum capacity of the Hellisheiði geothermal power plant is 303 MW of electricity and 400 MW of thermal energy. 

Hellisheiði and Nesjavellir power plants provide over 50% of the hot water being used for district heating in the capital area. Geothermal fields in Reykjavík and neighboring areas are the other source of hot water for the region. This hot water is also used for greenhouses, swimming pools, snow-melting, and a geothermal beach. 

At the geothermal exhibition, located at the Hellisheiði geothermal power plant, visitors can learn how Icelandic people have harnessed geothermal energy for hundreds of years and how current and future developments will make the Hellisheiði power plant one of the greenest energy sources on the planet.  

The Geothermal Exhibition is open every day from 09:00-16:00.

A visit includes a guided tour through the plant and various multi-media presentations. Larger parties (10 people or more) are encouraged to send us an email detailing the time and date of the visit and the size of the respective group.
