The Power Plants

The Faroe Islands consists of 18 islands, of which only one is uninhabited, so there are many plants to thank for the constant supply of electricity.

 
The normal electricity production is spread out between 13 power plants, which produce according to demand. Three of these plants are thermal – the Strond-, Sund-, and Vágur plants. SEV has six hydroelectric power plants – the Strond-, Eiðis-, Fossá-, Mýru- and Heyga plants, as well as the plant in Botni. In addition to these there are five smaller plants providing power for Fugloy, Mykines, Koltur, Skúvoy and Stóru Dímun.
 
SEV also has four windmills in Neshaga on Eysturoy.
