Villinganes Power Plant

Rivers East and West Jökulsá in Skagafjörđur

- Villinganes Power Plant

The rivers East and West Jökulsá in Skagafjörđur and their river basins are considered one of Iceland’s most valuable areas as far as culture, geological formations, waterways, biodiversity, ecosystems and soil are concerned. If Landsvirkjun’s proposals for a power plant at Villinganes are realized, both rivers would be dammed. The estimated lifetime of the power plant would not exceed 80 years.
