Kota Kinabalu: Local group Megaworld Vest Sdn Bhd and Gezhouba Group from China plan to embark on a joint venture to build a RM4 billion hydro power generation plant capable of producing up to 1,000 megawatt in Liwagu, Ranau.

The proposed project is in line with the vision of the Government to introduce and build more renewable power supply infrastructures in Sabah to gradually replace the present gas and diesel-fired power plants due to the exhaustion of gas production in Sabah in the near future.

Gezhouba is the main contractor that built the 22,500 megawatt Three Gorges Dam in China, the biggest hydro power dam in the world, according to a statement.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor was briefed on the proposal during a courtesy call by a joint delegation from Megaworld Vest and Gezhouba led by Megaworld Vest Chairman Datuk Seri Arsit Sedi at his office in Menara Kinabalu, here, on March 13.
