The Bakun Dam is an embankment dam located in SarawakMalaysiaon the Balui River[2] a tributary rmpangan source of the Rajang River and some sixty kilometres west of Belaga. It is planned to generate 2, megawatts MW of electricity once completed.

The purpose for the dam was to meet growing demand for electricity.

However, most of this demand is said to lie in Peninsular Malaysia and not East Malaysiawhere the dam is located. Even in Peninsular Malaysia, however, there enpangan an oversupply of electricity, with Tenaga Nasional Berhad being locked into unfavourable purchasing agreements with Independent Power Producers.

Future plans for the dam include connecting it to an envisioned Trans- Borneo Power Grid Interconnection, which would be a grid to supply power to Sarawak, SabahBruneiand Kalimantan Indonesia. There have been mentions of this grid made within ASEAN meetings but no actions have been taken by any party.

Bakun Dam came online on 6 August Initial survey was conducted in the early s and more studies were conducted in the early s. The studies cover the masterplan and feasibility report, rock and soil studies, hydro potential, detailed design and costing, environmental and socio-economic studies [8] and HVDC transmission empangab.

Although the project was first approved by government enpanganit was shelved in owing to decreased projection of electricity demand due to the recession of and the decision to use the then low-cost alternative of natural empsngan as fuel for developing the petrochemical industry.

In Januarya privatised contract was awarded to Ekran Berhad. Ekran awarded the electromechanical works and the transmission portion to ABB. ABB’s consortium partner for the civil works will be Companhia Brasileira de Projetos e Empangsn CBPO of Brazil, a large civil engineering company belonging to the Odebrecht Group, responsible for the construction of the dam and power house.

Neither empanga nor his company had built a dam before. The entire project was not tendered publicly, and instead was awarded by government contract. The project was halted in in the face of the Asian financial crisis. When the project was shelved, the Malaysian government took back the project from this consortium.

Other works are for selective clearing of biomass, and relocation of the affected native residents. The total sum to be paid to this consortium was budgeted at RM1. Inengineering consulting firm JR Knowles, was hired to study the delays in construction. In May Ting Pek Khing’s name again was raised in connection with the project.


A Ting-owned company, Global Upline, was rumoured to have been awarded a contract to undertake “biomass removal” in the flood basin.

This would allow him to harvest timber in the area without a separate permit. However, as of December it has not been awarded. Owing to delays in dam construction, the plans for the smelter have since been shelved.

The agreement for this smelter was originally signed in and some conditions have lapsed owing to delays in construction. The production capacity would betonnes initially with expansion to 1. Production of aluminium would start at the end of Discounting this project, they would all be operating profitably for the quarter. As of Februarythere are three developments affecting the Bakun project.

Chinese constructor Sinohydro has acknowledged that its construction procedures used for Bakun were flawed. The Sarawak Report said its website was attacked after it published the report. The rainforest of this part of Southeast Asia has some of the highest rates of plant and animal endemism, species found there and nowhere else on Earth, and this dam has done irreparable ecological damage to that region.

Many Sarawak natives have been relocated to a longhouse settlement named Sungai Asap in Bakun. Most of them were subsistence farmers.

Each family was promised 3 acres 1. The series highlighted the basic community problems faced by displaced indigenous people such as the lack of land areas for farming and hunting, lack of educational, medical, and transport facilities and also the promises not being kept by the government.

The provincial government empangab Sarawak is still looking for customers to consume the power to be generated by the project. Launched in Februaryan international NGO coalition that includes organisations from the US, Norway and Switzerland is showing its solidarity with Malaysian groups who are protesting against the construction of twelve hydroelectric dams in the Malaysian state of Sarawak on Borneo. The NGO coalition supports the Wmpangan groups’ demand for an immediate halt to the realisation of these dams, which threaten to displace tens of thousands of Sarawak natives and flood hundreds of square miles of Sarawak’s precious tropical rainforests.

There are four major transmission line sections: The last section on the Malay Peninsula will consist of an overhead DC powerline running from Tanjung Leman to the static inverter plant at Bentong. As part of the transmission works two converter stations will be built at Bakun and Tanjung Tenggara.

The revived submarine cable portion is to transmit the electricity generated at Bakun Dam in Borneo to Peninsular Malaysia, possibly by Sime Darby would take ownership of the submarine cable project but not undertake its construction. The buyer of the electricity is Tenaga Nasional.


The rate proposed is RM0.

Analysts estimated that generation cost using world-market-rate natural gas would cost RM0. On 7 JanuarySime Darby announced that they had appointed a financial adviser for the undersea power transmission project. However, the company did not name the financial adviser. After many delays, Sarawak Energy Berhad announced that the contract to build the submarine cable would be awarded in mid with international tenders to be called in early From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
