Year Founded:

Mannvit is Iceland’s largest engineering firm, with a staff of some 400 dedicated specialists. The company is the result of the merger of three long-established engineering companies that were all founded in the 1960s - Hönnun hf., VGK hf. and Rafhönnun hf. - three companies that have played significant roles in Iceland's development into a modern,  industrialized nation. Founded in 2008, Mannvit, has the combined strength and expertise of these three successful engineering companies, offering decades of experience across all disciplines of engineering, consulting, management and operational services.

Global Reach

Mannvit is dedicated to renewable energy development, sustainability and the ethical stewardship of our natural environment.  The company has been involved in most of the geothermal and hydroelectric developments in Iceland over the last few decades, and more recently has branched out into biogas and biofuels, CO2 sequestration, carbon recycling, waste management, industrial composting and many other projects.  The nature and diversity of these projects are a reflection of the company’s commitment to slowing and reversing climate change.
