Guayaquil (Ecuador) 23/01/2020 : It was on 22 January that the connection of the traction-load bearing cable from loop 3 was made, connecting stations G4B and G5. This operation was carried out manually by the cable manufacturing company (FATZER), under the responsibility of a technician and about 10 assistants.

It should be noted that, due to its importance in the operation of the system, the traction-load bearing cable requires exhaustive checks

“This operation is now completed and in the next few days we will begin the testing phase of the electromechanical components from the G4B station to the G5 station, by moving the cable first without a cable cars; then they will be added gradually,” said Léon Álvarez Mejía, Coordinator of the Operation and Maintenance phase.
