In May 2004 Ting Pek Khing's name again was raised in connection with the project.
A Ting-owned company, Global Upline, was rumoured to have been awarded a contract to undertake "biomass removal" in the flood basin.
This plan envisioned 730 km of overhead HVDC transmission lines in East Malaysia, 670 km of undersea HVDC cable and 300 km of HVDC transmission line in Peninsular Malaysia.
Future plans for the dam include connecting it to an envisioned Trans-Borneo Power Grid Interconnection, which would be a grid to supply power to Sarawak, Sabah, Brunei, and Kalimantan (Indonesia).
Ekran launched a rights issue to finance the building of the dam, but it was undersubscribed and Ting Pek Khing (Ekran's chairman) had to put up 0 million to take up the unsubscribed portion as part of his agreement with the underwriters.
Ekran was a company of Ting Pek Khing, himself a timber businessman. The entire project was not tendered publicly, and instead was awarded by government contract.
The purpose for the dam was to meet growing demand for electricity.
However, most of this demand is said to lie in Peninsular Malaysia and not East Malaysia, where the dam is located.
It is planned to generate 2,400 megawatts (MW) of electricity once completed.In April 1995, Ekran completed the EIA of the project.The project was to cost US.4 billion and was originally scheduled for completion in 2003.This would allow him to harvest timber in the area without a separate permit.The project is a joint venture between Dubai Aluminum Co, Ltd (Dubal) and Gulf International Investment Group (GIIG), an investment fund jointly set up by Malaysian tycoon Syed Mokhtar, and Dubai-based international financier Mohamed Ali Alabbar.
