Wind Energy

Wind energy is an important component in the transition to a low-carbon energy system because it is a clean and a renewable energy. It has low operating costs, low land use requirements, and can be sited in a variety of locations. With the cost of wind energy continuing to decrease, it is becoming an increasingly viable option for electricity generation and can play a significant role in helping to mitigate the effects of climate change.

GULF’s Wind Energy

GULF operates 2 offshore wind farms overseas, which are offshore wind farms (“Mekong Wind”) in Vietnam with a total gross installed capacity of 128.0 megawatts and Borkum Riffgrund II project in Germany with a gross installed capacity of 464.8 megawatts.

How wind energy is generated?

Wind energy is generated by using wind turbines to convert the kinetic energy of the wind into electrical energy. The blades of a wind turbine are designed to capture the wind's energy and rotate a shaft connected to a generator. The rotation of the shaft causes the generator to produce electricity. The electricity is then sent to a transformer, which increases the voltage and sends the electricity to the grid for distribution to homes and businesses.
