Landsnet’s interim financial statement for the January-June, 2022 period was published today.
Guðlaug Sigurðardóttir, CFO at Landsnet, says operations are stable and on schedule despite challenges in the supply chain.
"We are focussed on ensuring cost-effective and stable operations, essential to a key infrastructure company like Landsnet and its customers. We are proud of our performance and ability to deliver, despite the current upheaval in world markets and temporary energy shortages in Iceland during the spring months. Energy shortages caused a temporary increase in the tariff for transmission losses. Company operations were successful. Profit for the period is above expectations and can largely be attributed to increased income due to transmission losses. Landsnet expects to achieve a balance between income and expenses from transmission losses by the end of the year. Investments are on schedule despite numerous challenges in the supply chain. Our interim financial statements show Landsnet's financial strength and its operational success. The stability of the legal environment is a crucial factor in maintaining our strong position and equally vital to company lenders."
