Mudpools at Þeistareykir, North Iceland.  Sadly this area is being developed for harnessing energy for a geothermal power station. The first phase of the development involves the construction of a 45 MW station. The further expansion of the station is under consideration as the National Energy Authority has issued a power production licence for a 100 MW geothermal station in Þeistareykir. The facility is scheduled to commence power production in the autumn of 2017.
