ICELAND. Krafla. 2007. Steam rising from fissures in the geothermal area of Leirhnjukur, located very close to Krafla power station. This is one of the areas that are targeted for the large-scale expansion of the region’s geothermal power exploitation facilities that are necessary if the planned aluminium smelter at Husavik in North Iceland goes ahead. The area, which is thus far quite unspoiled contains some of Icelands most unique Lava formations, some of which are as young as 25 years old. If the area is used for power generation, it will probably be affected by access roads, pipes and power lines.
