  • Restructure and rehabilitation projectfrom Esajadi Power Sdn Bhd with the 21-year Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreement (REPPA), facilitated by Deloitte.
  • In 2015, the plant granted SEDA FIT REPPArate from Small Renewable Energy Power (SREP) Programme, upgrading generation allowed from 10MWto 12MW.
  • On May 2012, the plant granted SEDA FITREPPA rate from RM 0.17 to RM 0.24 per KWh
  • Date of 2015 earthquake: 4/6/2015
  • Type of turbine: Horizontal Francis Turbine, Hokkaido Electric Power (Japan)
Project Output and Environmental Impact:
- Total maximum output: 4.5 MW.Annual generating power: 30,243 MWh.
- Reduction in global GHGs: up to 22,500 tons CO2e annually (approximately 472,500 tons CO2e over 21 years).

Hydropower Context in Sabah:
- Only 6 small run-of-river hydropower plants operated by SESB (Sabah Electricity Sdn. Bhd.).
- No private sector small-scale hydropower plants due to investment barriers.

Market and Infrastructure:
- Small-scale hydro power is not common in Sabah; thermal power is prevalent.
- This project will be the first private sector initiative in small hydro power generation in Sabah.SESB is the sole power utility with a transmission network across Sabah.
Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) signed with SESB on 7th July 2005.Project will connect to SESB’s west coast transmission grids.

Contribution to Sustainable Development:
- Supports the development of sustainable energy, aligning with governmental policies.
- Promotes local employment and economic growth through the construction and maintenance of the hydropower plant.
- Advances technical transfer and small hydro power development in Sabah by the private sector.
The hydro plant will broadly consist of the following :
  • Using existing access road, to minimize the earthworks.
  • Extra earth will be disposed away, andspot turfing will be employed to prevent soil erosion.
  • Drainage systems, sedimentation ponds anddisposal areas will be provided at the powerhouse area, access road andpipeline route.
  • To abide Interim National Water Quality Standards of Malaysia as to maintain the water quality under Class 11B6.
  • Temporary workers houses will be placed 30m away from the river side and the workplace will be placed 50m away.
  • Extra earth will be placed 30m away fromthe river side and sedimentation pond will be provided.
  • Working on daytime from 7am to 5pm. Noiselevel will not exceed 55dBA from 8am to 6pm and 45dBA from 6pm to 8am.
  • Control the speed of vehicles, especially during dry period to reduce dusty surfaces.
  • Solid waste or plants debris not bethrown into drainage, pond or river. Solid waste collection must be placed 30maway from the river and liquid collection, especially oil and toxic must beplaced 50m away.
  • To abide Interim National Water Quality Standards for Malaysia to maintain thewater quality under Class 11B.
