Kayan Hydro Energy (Khe), a local subsidiary of the Chinese company Power Construction Corp. of China (PowerChina), has undertaken construction work on a 9 gigawatt hydroelectric power plant on the island of Borneo, set to become the largest in Southeast Asia. .

The long postponed project began with the construction of an access road to the Kayan Waterfall, along the river of the same name in the Indonesian province of North Kalimantan, about two and a half hours by boat from the provincial capital of Tanjung selor. At present the only way to transport heavy machinery to the site of the future hydroelectric power plant is by barge.

Construction work on the diversion canal will begin next year. The first dam, with a capacity of 900 megawatts, is expected to become operational in 2026; the latest project, the fifth, should also be the largest in terms of power generation, with a capacity of 3,3 gigawatts.
