Poma: An aerial tramway on the largest hydroelectric facility in Ecuador
A very unique monocable aerial ropeway—the Coca Codo Sinclair—was inaugurated on 15 march, at the heart of the Amazonian forest, on the site of the largest hydroelectric facility in Ecuador.
The installation is private and is part of the global 1500 MW hydroelectric dam project that is already in operation. It will transport maintenance personnel on the site and will also welcome visitor groups next year. Before, the two stations could only be reached after driving for 1.5 hours. The connection is now made in only 4 minutes!
