Hvammur Power Plant

River Ţjórsá

- Hvammur Power Plant

If proposals for a power plant at Hvammur are carried out, the flow of the river would be substantially diminished, causing increased risk of erosion from the riverbed and resultant dust pollution and sandstorms. The area's only birch forest would be exposed to sheep grazing. Landsvirkjun has proposed the construction of an 93 MW power plant at Hvammur by the river Ţjórsá.
