Landsvirkjun National Power Company of Iceland

Landsvirkjun is Iceland’s largest producer of electricity, and one of the 10 largest renewable energy companies in Europe. Iceland generates 99% of its electricity from renewable energy resources and Landsvirkjun generates two thirds of this electricity. The company has an installed capacity of 1,987 MW operating 14 hydropower stations, 2 geothermal power stations and 2 wind turbines across the country. With its asset base both growing and aging, Landsvirkjun was outgrowing its existing asset management systems and needed a more robust approach to investment decision making and long-term planning.

In 2012, the company engaged Copperleaf™ to help them evaluate the company’s current asset investment planning processes, and map out where they wanted to go in the future. After analysing the outcomes of those discussions, Landsvirkjun decided on a phased implementation of C55™ which has brought significant benefits to the company including:

  • Better, faster decisions
  • Process efficiencies
  • Improved visibility and management of risk
  • Employee engagement and satisfaction

With Copperleaf’s C55 solution, we have aligned our investment planning and management process with best practices, to ensure that our capital investment projects fully support our corporate goals, and that our planning processes factor in all of the resources—financial, labour and materials—required to execute those projects.

Executive Vice President – Energy Division, Landsvirkjun

I have participated in many software implementation and integration projects in the past, but none as pleasant as C55. Copperleaf is great to work with and they have given us a unique customer experience that made us feel like part of their family.
