Rice husk to power agriculture

Cambodia-based SOMA Energy will construct two bio-mass power-generating plants that convert rice husks into electricity to supply Cambodian farmers working in the provinces.

SOMA energy, a subsidiary of SOMA group, has invested nearly $3 million in the construction of the plants, one of which is located in Bati district in Takeo province. The other is in Kampong Thom province’s Stoung district.

“All the investment is from SOMA at this stage,” said, Vong Sam Ang, general manager of SOMA Consulting Service, adding that if successful, they would look to expand and seek other investors to partner with.

Each generator has capacity to produce up to 750 kilowatts per hour, Sam Ang said.

“Our main purpose is to use the rice husk to produce electricity in order to supply people in remote areas,” he said.

SOMA said that the rice husk bio-mass plants will be operational sometime early next year.
