One River Power

One River Power comprised of few companies of the business interest is mainly in GREEN POWER TECHNOLOGY.

We are focusing on countries with largest underutilized potential for hydro power project in Southeast Asia and maximizing its potential

Diligently assessing potential projects based on type and geographical location to keep development cost at approximately USD2 million per MW.

What We Do

Basically, we are river seeker for small hydro power plant installation. Our activities involve from identifying the suitable river, including conducting detailed feasibility study of the identified river including the hydrology of the river stream which will assist us in the engineering design of the plant.

In summary, we are in-charge for overall development of small hydro power plant - from obtaining approval form relevant authorities having jurisdiction in the development of renewal energy in our country, securing the required financing for the project, the procurement, the construction, the installation of machinery, equipment and auxiliaries, the testing and commissioning, including the operation and maintenance of the small hydro power generation plant.





Project

Development of mini and small hydro power plant is promoted by the government of Malaysia. In 2001, Malaysian Government launched “Small Renewable Energy Program” (SREP) to attract independent power producers to develop and build power plants based on renewable energy resources.

The government of Malaysia, through the Ministry of Kementerian Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau Dan Air (KeTTHA), formed Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) with the objective of encouraging, administering and monitoring the development of Renewable Energy power plants by private developers. One River Power Sdn Bhd (1 River), a private company incorporated in Sabah, intends to develop small hydro power plants at Sungai Bengkoka, within the district of Kota Marudu, Sabah.

The project is located on the northern part of Sabah in the district of Kota Marudu, Malaysiaa

Sungai Bengkoka (Upper) with 10MW

Development of Bengkoka River Upper Small Hydro Power Plant [Generating Capacity: 10.0 mW] at district of Kota Marudu of the State of Sabah, Malaysia.

The total pipeline is approximately 3.5km long for Sg. Bengkoka [Upper] and would be of welded mild-steel laid underground. The powerhouse would be equipped with two twin jet Pelton turbines of 6.0 MW each providing a total annual energy of 61 GWh. Tail water from the power station is fed back into Sg. Bengkoka.

Sungai Bengkoka (Lower) with 13.5MW

Development of Bengkoka River Lower Small Hydro Power Plant [Generating Capacity: 13.5 mW] at district of Kota Marudu of the State of Sabah, Malaysia.

The pipeline is 2.5 km long and of welded mild-steel laid underground. The lower powerhouse would be equipped with two twin jet Pelton turbines of 7.5 MW each providing a total annual energy of 69 GWh. Tail water will be discharged back into Sg. Bengkoka. Power generated will be transmitted by a 33kV line to the proposed Interconnection Facility and Communication Facility (IFCF) at Jalan Damai junction off Kota Marudu-Pitas road.

Sungai Togohu with 5.6MW

Development of Togohu River Small Hydro Power Plant [Generating Capacity: 5.6 mW] at district of Kota Marudu of the State of Sabah, Malaysia.

A high level intake (Sg. Bengkoka[Upper]) at RL600m feeds water (flow = 5.32 m3/s) to the powerhouse located at RL400m and second intake (Sg. Togohu) at RL500m feeds water (flow = 5.33 m3/s) to the same powerhouse. Water would be captured by a stream bed intake with a weir of 5 m high. Sand and silt would be removed from the water in a desander (settling basin) before entering the pipeline to the powerhouse.The total pipeline is approximately 3km long for Sg. Togohu and would be of welded mild-steel laid underground. The powerhouse would be equipped with two twin jet Turgo turbines of 3.0 MW each providing a total annual energy of 30 GWh.
