While the industrial plant of Thorverk is undergoing renovation, the geothermal wells at Reykholar were put under a load test. It is the international goethermal research and consultancy ISOR that performs the tests. During the first two weeks of February the welltops were made ready with the insertion of pressure and flow meters as well as thermeters. 

As soon as the pressure in the pipes changes, vapour begins to  risefrom pipe new spots at Reykholar. Those are indications of small leakages in the system. All pipes were therefore mended and where it was neccesary new pipes and pressure meters were installed.  

Within a few weeks a report will be issued from ISOR concerning the geothermal conditions.
