SCA started the development of Nysäter Wind Farm in 2010, and in 2011 the project was taken over by E.ON Climate & Renewables, now RWE Renewables, which owns 20% of the park and has the task of being the owner representative. The remaining 80% is owned by a fund managed by Energy Infrastructure Partners.

The facility is one of Europe's largest wind farms and consists of two areas called Hästkullen and Björnlandhöjden. There are two models of wind turbines used in the park, one smaller and one larger according to the table above, both supplied by the turbine manufacturer Nordex. Together, the turbines will produce 1.7 TWh per year, which roughly corresponds to the annual energy consumption of 300,000 Swedish households or emissions from 360,000 cars during a year. 

Construction of the park began in 2018 and commissioning of the turbines will take place gradually as they are completed. In mid-November 2020, the first turbine was connected to the grid, where the main connection takes place at the main grid station Nysäter, which has given the park its name. Construction of the wind turbines is now progressing according to plan until late 2021 when the entire park is planned to be connected and officially move to the operational phase. Until then, RWE holds information meetings and arranges visits to the park for residents in the area. 

Another important milestone for the project is the agreement between the wind farm and the Wind Power Fund Hästkullen / Björnlandhöjden. The money from the fund is intended to be used for development in local business, sports, culture and leisure projects. 

The park's surrounding nature makes the experience of a visit spectacular, as the tall turbines placed with a large difference in level in the ground provide fantastic views.
