Sweden: Nysäter inaugurated

On Thursday 9th of June, the Swedish Nysäter project including windfarms Hästkullen and Björnlandshöjden was inaugurated in Viksjö, Västernorrland county three years after the construction started in 2019. 

The 114 Nordex Group wind turbines at Nysäter are expected to deliver annually 1,7 TeraWatt hours which is equivalent to the electricity consumption of 320 000 Swedish households. 

Hästkullen consists of two different turbine models including 68 N149/4.0-4.5 and 5 N131/3900 turbines, with three different types of towers: TS120, TS125 and TS145. Björnlandshöjden consists of 41 wind turbines, 36 N149/4.0-4.5 and 5 N131/3900, with four types of towers: TS120, TS125, TS134 and TS145.  

The N149/4.0-4.5 was the first model Nordex launched of the Delta4000 platform in 2017. The N149/4.0-4.5 model has a rotor with three blades and a rotor diameter of 149.1 meters. The output of turbines range between 4.0 and 4.5 MWs. Hästkullen wind farm consists of 47 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines with 145-meter towers and 25 turbines with 125-meter towers. When it comes to Björnlandshöjden, there are 33 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines with 145-meter towers in the wind farm. The total height of the turbines is calculated by combining the blade length of 74.55 meters with the tower height, which gives the N149/4.0-4.5 with 145-meter towers a total height of 219.55 m and the turbines with 125-meter towers a total height of 199.55 meters. 

Launched in 2016, the N131/3900 with an output of 3.9 MW was an upgraded version of the medium wind turbine N131/3000. Just like the N149/4.0-4.5, the N131/3900 rotor has three blades, but a diameter of 131 meters. The total height of the N131/3900 turbines with the 120-meter towers is 185.5 meters while the 134-meter towers give the turbines a total height of 199.5 meters. 

Members of the European and Nordic management visited the inauguration of Nysäter and raised a glass to the finalisation of many years of planning and realisation of the project.  

Nordex staff at inauguration: Jan Graeff, Vice President Region Nordic; Jose Ignacio Cortes Mancha, Senior Project Manager/Project Director Nysäter; Ibrahim Oerzarslan, CEO Division Europe/MB Europe; Tim Carpenter, Managing Director Sweden/Head of Sales Nordics; Paul AlWindi, Senior Lead Counsel Nordics.
