Mapping onshore with regards to groundwater and geothermal energy

Mapping onshore is something we consistently are working with. We will now focus on mapping of fractures, layer boundaries and reservoirs (volcaniclastic and tuff layers). This is in order to explore the possibilities to utilize groundwater and geothermal energy onshore. This work will contribute to making the Faroe Islands more sustainable regarding renewable energy and clean water to both citizens and industry.


The Faroese Geological Survey (Jarðfeingi) has in 2015 og 2016 done two reports regarding the hot water in Kollafjørð.
To download these reports, please press on the pictures below. *The reports are in Faroese, but there is an english summary in the report from 2015, called “Grundvatn í Føroyum”.
