Tenom: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim completed a groundbreaking ceremony for the Ulu Padas hydroelectric dam project at Kampung Kungkular, here, today.

The RM4 billion dam estimated to complete in 2027 will be capable of generating 187.5 megawatts (MW) of electricity and contribute significantly to Sabah's energy supply grid with an increase of 15 per cent. 

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor said it will not only overcome the electricity supply shortage in Sabah but it is also one of the sustainable long-term solutions for the state.
