ABOUT VARMAORKA

Varmaorka is an Icelandic project developer that focuses on harnessing geothermal reseources in areas where heat temperatures are approximately 100°C.
Varmaorka develops, finances, constructs and operates small scale geothermal facilities in Iceland. The company‘s first facilities, with a total capacity of 1 MW, will commence operations in 2018. Plans are underway to add up to 15 MW in phases until 2021.

TECHNOLOGY

Varmaorka uses the Climeon Heat Power 150 units in the process. Each unit has a power capacity of 150 kW and is small and scalable. The units are independent and allow for scalability up to a 50 MW system. Climeon Heat Power can produce energy from geothermal resources at temperatures of 120°C down to 70°C. The system operates at a higher efficiency than other low temperature solutions.

WHAT WE OFFER

Varmaorka utilizes energy in hot water from renewable sources to produce clean electricity. The water temperature decreases during the production process, without affecting the water‘s quantity or quality, thus providing a solution that can be applied in a number of areas. The process is clean and free of any pollution.
