    Nysäter Wind Farm, a Large-scale Project in Sweden, is now Connected to the Grid


    June 10, 2022 - Gulf Oil & Gas

     

      The Nysäter wind farm, around 400 kilometres north of Stockholm, is now an important pillar of Sweden's green energy supply, and it will be launched today afternoon in the presence of high-ranking commercial and political figures. The 475 megawatt capacity of the 114 turbines is impressive. Nysäter is now one of Europe's largest wind farms, generating enough green electricity to meet the annual needs of over 300,000 Swedish families and supporting North Sweden's green industrial revolution. The wind farm has the potential to cut CO2 emissions in Europe by one million tonnes per year.

      RWE has a 20 percent stake in the project and will fully operate the wind farm, while Energy Infrastructure Partners AG (EIP) holds 80 percent. With this commitment, the company is supporting the Swedish government in its efforts to achieve its ambitious climate protection goals. RWE operates one offshore and 10 onshore wind farms in Sweden. RWE has taken over the operation of further facilities on behalf of third parties. “We are proud to implement one of Europe's largest onshore green energy projects together with our partners in Nysäter,” says Katja Wünschel, CEO Onshore Wind & Solar Europe & Australia of RWE Renewables. “This is a joint success of all stakeholders, for whose efforts I would like to express my sincere thanks. We have jointly managed one of the largest onshore wind farm projects in Europe.”

      RWE intends to further expand its leading role in the renewable energy sector in Sweden. There are currently many more projects in the pipeline, which is why new staff are being sought. “We will strengthen our current team of 100 with additional colleagues,” says Katja Wünschel.
