Iceland's Mannvit engineering firm has become one of the world's leaders in geothermal development. The company has been involved in the development of nearly every geothermal project in Iceland and Greenland, including the Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant, Nesjavellir Geothermal Power Plant, Krafla Geothermal Power Plant, Husavik Kalina Cycle Geothermal Power Plant and the Svartsengi Geothermal Power Plant.
However, the engineering firm continues to grow its reach outside of the northern island countries. Recently Mannvit announced that its latest geothermal energy project has been brought on-line in Szentlőrinc, Hungary.
The new geothermal plant will provide the town with 3.1 MW of thermal energy, enough energy to bring heat and hot water to 900 of the town's homes.
The US$7.1 million geothermal plant, which replaces the town's natural-gas powered heating system, is Hungary's largest geothermal development. Mannvit and partner PannErgy Plc have been developing the project for four years.
