The extension works on the hydropower station Burfell (100 MW) have begun last spring. The cavern with an excavation volume of 35 000 m³, the two 100 m long shafts (Raise Drill d = 6 m and d = 4.5 m) as well as various hydro tunnels and access tunnels have already been excavated. The concreting works in the cavern, the hydraulic steelwork and the outfitting work have begun on schedule.
The finishing works on the new power station are scheduled for spring 2018. By putting it into operation, the new power station will be one of the main power provider in Reykjavik.
