2 Japan firms to launch biomass, solar power generation in Cambodia

Japanese renewable energy producer Aura Green Energy Co. has teamed up with a compatriot partner to launch a hybrid power generation business combining biomass and solar energy in Cambodia in 2021, aiming to help secure stable power supply.

Aura Green Energy and solar panel system provider WWB Corp. plan to build a plant for power generation using rice husk as fuel in a rice mill near Phnom Penh, along with solar panels, an Aura Green Energy spokeswoman told NNA last week.

Under the 400 million yen ($3.7 million) project, the combined green energy facilities, with a total output capacity of 1,500 kilowatts, will supply power to the rice mill of Angkor Kasekam Roongroeung Co., a major local rice producer, in Kandal Province adjacent to the capital, with a plan to sell any surplus to a local power company.
