Landsvirkjun, the National Power Company of Iceland, is Iceland's largest electricity generator and one of the ten largest producers of renewable energy in Europe. Landsvirkjun operates 18 power plants in Iceland, and they also operate two windmills as a research and development test site.
For years, Landsvirkjun has operated a reserve power system in the company's headquarters in Reykjavik. These have been designed to keep the company's mission critical data center, its data network and communications systems operational in the event of a utility power failure or a power outage at the headquarters.
Crucially, for a volcanic country, the reserve power systems are also designed to ensure that the company's emergency response management facilities, also located in the company’s headquarters, remain in operation during prolonged outages or in case of nationwide natural disasters.
