The first of the 21 turbines already built has been connected to the power grid and has begun to generate electricity.
When completed, the wind farm will consist of 114 Nordex turbines with a total installed capacity of 474 megawatts.
The site would produce enough renewable electricity to provide the equivalent annual consumption of up to 300,000 Swedish households. RWE Renewables has a 20 percent interest in the project and will run and manage the wind farm when it is completed.
“The Nysäter wind farm will play an important role in achieving Sweden’s ambitious climate targets. Our involvement in this large-scale project underlines our aim to further strengthen our position among the world’s leading renewables companies.”Katja Wünschel, COO wind onshore & solar PV Europe & APAC at RWE Renewables.
RWE Renewables and the Energy Infrastructure Partners (EIP) fund own 20 percent and 80 percent respectively, of the Nysäter wind farm located in Viksjö, near Härnösand. The wind farm is expected to be finished by the end of 2021.
