Bengoh Dam, Bengoh, Sarawak
This 63 metre high by 267 metre long dam will have a capacity of 144 million cubic metres (1m³ = 1,000kg or 1 tonne) and will produce a lake with a surface area of approximately 10km². Designed to secure Kuching’s water supply for the foreseeable future, the dam was only the second in Malaysia to be constructed using Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) technology, which offers a projected service life of 100 years.
Due to technical complexity of the project and our strategic objective of leveraging on and learning from the best companies in their respective fields, we worked closely with Sinohydro Corporation of China, whose track record includes the 18,200MW Three Gorges Dam in China and the 2,400MW Bakun Dam in Sarawak. The dam has since been impounded.
