Landsvirkjun's operations are unaffected by the volcanic eruption

April 23, 2010

Landsvirkjun´s facilities are intact and are not expected to be affected by the volcanic activity even though the wind direction would change and the ash cloud would be carried inland. An impact assessment already carried out indicates no or very limited risk for Landsvirkjun's facilities. This applies equally to the effects of ash clouds, floods and lava flows.

The volcano Eyjafjallajokull is located on the south coast of Iceland, and prevailing wind has spread the ash to the south and south-east of Iceland. A few farms on the south coast have been seriously affected by ash fall.
