Our Group, works closely with our member companies to provide strategic business services ranging from Finance, Business Development, Human Resources and Communications.
Soma Group is always looking ahead to understand the economic and societal changes that will shape our business in the future and ensure that we move swiftly to prepare for what's to come. Recently we have expanded our operations and added two new subsidiary companies, taking the Group from eight to ten companies. We welcomed on board, Soma Kobelco Water Supply and C.A.D.I. Both of these companies are a JV with international organizations from Japan and Thailand bringing wealth of expertise, knowledge and international operating procedures.
For two decades, Soma Farm has worked to maximize the quality of its farm and livestock, bringing healthy and delicious products to our customers, including beef, eggs, coconuts and our specialty product, Soma Rice. Our focus is high-tech production and international health and hygiene standards for the most fresh, delicious, local and sustainable products.
Our commercial Real Estate & Hospitality interests are taking shape when Soma Group broke ground on the new Soma Hotel project in 2018. This venture is located on Phnom Penh's riverside and is set to transform and help regenerate the local area.
Meanwhile, our Soma Energy business that began with a focus on renewable energy has expanded to Energy solutions. We now provide backup power generators for commercial buildings and industrial zones as well as other energy solutions. In 2019, we are renewing our commitment to more sustainable energy sources by developing a 1.5 MW ground mounted solar project in Kampong Thom.
Our current diversified interests also include CPTL a power transmission line company as well as the University of Puthisastra and Soma Trading. We believe that local expertise and insight combined with international business standards encourage more strategic decisions and ensures operational efficiency.
